Author Russ Thompson has a uniquely southern gothic style. Being born and raised in Memphis, TN, Thompson is well versed in the southern culture that he brings to life in his writing. During his college years, he cultivated a love for writers such as Kurt Vonnegut, William Faulkner, Shirley Jackson, Herman Hesse, Stephen King, and Neil Gaiman and went on to teach Science for fourteen years. In 2014, he published a collection of short stories, Tales from the Rim. It established Thompson’s voice as a southern Gothic storyteller.
Many of the stories were based on real Tennessee ghost stories in which Thompson takes the framework of a myth and fills in the details with masterful fiction. Shortly thereafter, he began to write articles for Click Magazine and became a beta reader for Winter Wolf Press. In the spring of 2018, Thompson finished his first novel, The Loop Breaker: A Beacon and the Darkness.
