Erik Amundsen has been removed from display after it was determined that he was zoologically improbable and/or terrifying to small children. His latest story, "William Did," appears in Spells and Swashbucklers (Ford, ed.); earlier stories are in Not One of Us, Clarkesworld, Jabberwocky, Everyday Weirdness, and Fantasy, and his 2007 debut story, "Bufo Rex" in Weird Tales, was a WSFA Small Press finalist.
His poetry has appeared in Chanteys for the Fisherangels (Carr, ed.), the chapbook Cinderella Jump Rope Rhymes (Forrest, ed.), Mythic Delirium, Goblin Fruit, Jabberwocky, Strange Horizons, Stone Telling, and Apex; two of his poems have been nominated for this year's Rhyslings.
His illustrations appear in Julia Rios's chapbook Oracle Gretel (2012), his poetry reviews at versification.org, and he blogs at Black Gate Magazine.
Erik Amundsen haunts swamps and desolate suburban sprawl. His range is mostly confined to central Connecticut, though he did once fly to the moon on a pink flamindigo.
