Welcome to the shadowy corridors of Grendel Press, where we celebrate the art of storytelling at its most dark and imaginative. Today, we are thrilled to introduce a new member to our dark circle: Travis Mushanski, a master brewer of both ales and nightmares.
Travis hails from the University of Regina, where he honed his craft in English, specializing in creative writing. His academic journey wasn’t just about learning the mechanics of writing; it was about delving into the depths of what makes a story linger in your mind, long after the last page is turned. And linger they do, as Travis’ short fiction pieces are known for exploring the horrors that skulk just beyond our field of vision, making us question what’s really out there.
His tales have crept into the pages of publications like Chthonic Matter and Lovecraftiana, and whispered through the airwaves on the Kaidankai podcast. This isn’t just storytelling; it’s an experience, a journey into the unknown. For those who crave a taste of his unsettling narratives, his work has also been featured in anthology series from notable publishers such as Eerie River Publishing, Hellbound Books, and Gravestone Press.
But Travis isn’t just a weaver of dark dreams. When the moon sets and the sun peeks over the horizon, he trades his pen for hops and grains. As a professional brewer in a local craft brewery, he applies the same creativity and attention to detail to his brews as he does to his writing. This unique blend of passions makes Travis a fascinating addition to our family.
Off the clock, Travis is grounded by the love and support of his family. His wife, Janelle, and daughter, Emma, are the bedrock of his world, providing the love and stability that fuels his creativity.
As we eagerly anticipate the amazing stories Travis will bring to our catalog, we invite you to join us in this journey. Follow him on Twitter @TravisMushanski to get a glimpse into his world, and explore his collected works on Amazon to get a taste of what’s to come.
In the coming months, keep an eye out for blog posts that delve deeper into Travis’ unique blend of brewing and writing, the inspirations behind his unsettling tales, and sneak peeks of his upcoming projects with Grendel Press. Here’s to a partnership that promises to fill our nights with the kind of stories that make us afraid of the dark, yet unable to resist the call of another page.
Travis Mushanski, welcome to Grendel Press – where the dark becomes art.
