David Barker's fiction and prose poetry appeared in many small press horror magazines in the 1980s and '90s. He was the founding editor of Midnight Shambler, and edited Ye Olde Lemurian and The Lovecrafter 100th Anniversary Issue before leaving the field in the late '90s. In 2012, David returned to horror with the ebook trilogy, Electro-Thrall Zombies. His work has recently appeared in Fungi, Cyaegha, Spectral Realms, and on Shoggoth.net. In collaboration with W. H. Pugmire, David has two books of Lovecraftian fiction out from Dark Renaissance Books: The Revenant of Rebecca Pascal (2014) and In the Gulfs of Dream & Other Lovecraftian Tales (2015). He is currently collaborating with Pugmire on a novel set in Lovecraft's Dreamlands, to be published by Dark Renaissance Books in 2016.
