About Max Booth III
Raised in Northern Indiana on an unhealthy diet of horror movies and Christopher Pike paperbacks, Max Booth III now lives in San Antonio, TX where he is constantly trying not to get shot. It is harder than you think. He serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Perpetual Motion Machine, the Managing Editor of Dark Moon Digest, and the co-host of Castle Rock Radio: A Stephen King Podcast. He writes online for LitReactor and CrimeReads and reviews books for the San Antonio Current. His latest novel is Carnivorous Lunar Activities, published via Fangoria.
