Thom Reese is the author of the novels, THE INFUSION OF ARCHIE LAMBERT, A SAVAGE DISTANCE, THE DEMON BAQASH, DEAD MAN’S FIRE, CHASING KELVIN, and THE EMPTY, along with the short story collection, 13 BODIES: SEVEN TALES OF MURDER & MADNESS. The first in the trilogy of novels, THE DRACULA JOURNALS, will be released in fall of 2016. Thom was the sole writer and co-producer of the weekly audio drama radio program, 21ST CENTURY AUDIO THEATRE. Several of Thom’s audio dramas have been published on CD and MP3 formats. A native of the Chicago area, Thom currently makes his home with his wife in Las Vegas, Nevada.
He has also been contracted to write a Dracula Trilogy titled THE DRACULA JOURNALS. These are intended to be sequels to the original Bram Stoker novel with the first acting as both a prequel and a sequel. As with Stoker’s masterpiece the books will be written as a series of journals and correspondences. Unlike Stoker’s novel, Dracula’s own journal will be included, thus allowing the reader to get a glimpse into the vampire’s thoughts and motivations as well as his origins as a vampire.
