Tim Pratt typically writes about love, monsters, secret societies, romance, trickster gods, terrible decisions, punching, metaphysics, nostalgia, entropy, magical anthropophagous cars, bridges to implausible realities, libraries, demonic thrift shops, cryptids, and breakfast foods, among other subjects. Most of his stories involve magic, or science, or science that could be mistaken for magic.
And he's pretty good at this stuff. He won a Hugo Award for one of his stories a while back, and his short work has been nominated for World Fantasy, Nebula, Sturgeon, and Stoker Awards, too. His stories have appeared in the Best American Short Stories (Fancy!), the Year's Best Fantasy, The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, the Mammoth Book of Best New Horror – you get the idea.
Go to timpratt.org to learn about more about his books and collections, or like I mentioned earlier, head over to patreon.com/timpratt to read more of his stories. Recently, in light of the Coronavirus and all the quarantines, Tim made the first year of stories on Patreon free for anyone to read. That's very cool, but you might as well toss him a buck a month to read all of his stories.
