About

Hi, thanks for visiting my website!

I’m Dan Howarth, a writer from the North of England. I mostly write horror, which is fitting as I am Mancunian born but now find myself living on Merseyside.

My involvement in the horror scene has largely been through This Is Horror where I am a reviewer and one of the original hosts of the This Is Horror podcast. A personal highlight was my interview with Joe Hill.

My fiction has been published in a number of anthologies including “No Monsters Allowed”, “The Hyde Hotel” and “Stories of the Dead”, as well as some online zines. I am constantly looking to expand my back catalogue.

I have also co-edited two themed anthologies with James Everington. The Hyde Hotel (2016) collects stories from a range of writers, including one of my own, with all stories set in the same sinister hotel. Imposter Syndrome (2017) collates stories from a diverse set of writers on the theme of doubles and doppelgangers. Imposter Syndrome has been short-listed for a British Fantasy Society Award in 2018. Plans are afoot for a third anthology in 2019.

Away from my short fiction and editing work, I’ve recently completed my first novel and I’m currently completing final edits before approaching publishers.

When I’m not writing, I enjoy craft beer, German football and barbecue food.
