“Bassoff confronts directly the traumatic stress disorder of our world today and tears off its mask, even if the face must follow.”
—New York Magazine
Jon Bassoff was born in 1974 in New York City and currently lives with his family and a sickly greyhound in a ghost town somewhere in Colorado. His mountain gothic novel, Corrosion, was called “startlingly original and unsettling” by Tom Piccirilli, a four-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award, and won the DarkFuse Reader’s Choice Award for best novel. His surrealistic follow-up, Factory Town, was called “A hallucinatory descent into an urban hell” by Bram Stoker award-winning author Ramsey Campbell. His latest novel, The Incurables, will be released in November of 2015. For his day job, Bassoff teaches high school English where he is known by students and faculty alike as the deranged writer guy. He is a connoisseur of tequila, hot sauces, psychobilly music, and flea-bag motels.
