Erik Amundsen has been removed from display after it was determined that he was zoologically improbable and/or terrifying to small children. His most recent story, "On EveryBoy's Skin/All the Stars Ever, Also Bones" appeared in the first issue of Lackington's. The story "Jupiter and Gentian" will appear in Apex later this year. Also, "Live Arcade," which appeared in Strange Horizons, is in The Year's Best Science Fiction & Fantasy: 2014 (Horton, ed.). Earlier stories are in Not One of Us, Clarkesworld, Jabberwocky, Everyday Weirdness, and Fantasy, while his 2007 debut story, "Bufo Rex," was in Weird Tales and 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), and in the trailer for CSE Cooney's "Martyr's Gem."

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.
