R.K. Duncan is an author mostly of fantasy, science-fiction, and horror. He writes about fairies, gods, and ghosts from a ramshackle apartment in Philadelphia. In the shocking absence of any cats, he lavishes spare attention on cast iron cookware and his long-suffering and supportive partner. He has read the Silmarillion five times. Before settling on writing, he studied linguistics and philosophy at Haverford college. His stories have appeared most recently at Pseudopod and in the Shards anthology from Spring Song Press. His occasional musings and links to other work can be found at
