About Derek Hawke
Derek T. Hawke loves old school science fiction, cheerful horror, and dark fairy tales. You can find dozen of his stories on YouTube under his writer’s tag KillaHawke1. He lives outside of Austin Texas, where he does whatever it takes to keep cool, evade the biggest mosquitoes ever to have flapped their wings on God’s green Earth (they love him because apparently he’s delicious), and be a menace to the closed-minded. When he is not experimenting in terror, he spends his spare time writing, creating graphic arts for various projects, and providing narrations for various YouTube channels.

--ABOUT MODERN DREAD--
The project that would eventually become "Modern Dread" was originally conceived as the solution to a problem. As a writer who seeks to be published consistently, I must usually plan my texts according to strictly external guidelines. A marketable story is generally one of two things. It is either quite short, or else it is the length of a complete novel. As I wrote "The Lossy Incident", I realized that I was creating something that couldn’t properly fit into either of these two main categories. This was a recurring issue that I had noticed before with my other projects. The current “territory” for novella and novelette-length stories remains sparse in terms of profitability and audience opportunities. That strikes me as an absolute shame. I reached out to my fellow authors about publishing a collection of longer stories that weren’t quite novels.I was humbled by the amazing response that I got from my peers. It turns out that the practice of writing novelette-style fiction remains alive and well. That fact is now what "Modern Dread" aims to celebrate.
