His first book as editor was Back From The Dead: The Legacy of the Pan Book of Horror Stories (2010) which led to him being made the Project Manager for the 50th Anniversary reissue of The Pan Book of Horror Stories (1959). He created the best-selling series Dead Funny: Horror Stories by Comedians, has edited the Best British Horror series and wrote the introduction for the 30th anniversary edition of Stephen King’s Thinner. He is author of three collections and one novel, and has spent the last four years researching ‘lost’ supernatural short stories by Victorian women, the latest book being Our Lady Of Hate: The Short Stories of Catherine Lord (2020).
Coming from IDW, Steve is writing The October Faction, a new series of the ongoing adventures of retired monster-hunter Frederick Allan and his family. Cal McDonald continues in the Criminal Macabre series The Third Child, from Dark Horse, and the Criminal Macabre Casebook #1 has also just been released, as well as in stories currently being published by Steve's own Bloody Pulp Books. Steve has just finished with his 12 part run of Ash & the Army of Darkness for Dynamite, the long-awaited sequel to the movie in comic form.
30 Days of Night sparked renewed interest in the horror genre, released in 2007 as a major motion picture. Other comics he has written have been optioned for films, including Criminal Macabre and Freaks of the Heartland. Currently, Steve's Breath of Bones, The Tale of the Golem"is set to be directed by Andrew Adamson. Recently, Niles' zombie comic, Remains, was released as part of Chiller Network's "Chiller Presents" series.
Steve was raised in the Washington, D.C. suburbs, developing his interests in music, writing, and making amateur films. He worked in several comic book stores and played in the bands Gray Matter and Three during the heyday of the Washington harDCore punk scene, both of which released records on Dischord Records label.
Steve resides outside of Los Angeles with his wife, Monica, two dogs, five cats and Gil the tortoise. While there's no crawlspace, there is a questionable closet in one corner and no one is quite sure what is hidden in there... but we have an idea.
