M. David Blake lives in Hillsborough, NC with his wife and daughter. By day he is a stay-at-home father and househusband. In college, he utterly flunked a study of science fiction, and before college, he periodically reassembled the shattered skulls of murder victims. Currently he serves as an associate editor for Stupefying Stories, and a slush reader for Fantastic Stories of the Imagination.
Since his first professional sale (“Absinthe Fish”) appeared in 2011, he is also eligible for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in both 2012 and 2013.
