Gary Fry has a first-class degree and a PhD in psychology, though his first love is literature. He lives in Dracula's Whitby, literally around the corner from where Bram Stoker was staying while thinking about that legendary character. He has been writing seriously for around 10 years, despite dabbling with prose since his teens. His first sale was rather a grand one: a short story, 'Both And', to Ramsey Campbell for inclusion in the international anthology Gathering the Bones.
Gary has had a number of books published, including short story collections, novellas and novels. His first collection included an introduction by Ramsey Campbell in which Gary was described as a "master". All these books reflect Gary's predilection for page-turning narratives, complex thematic development, and compelling characterisation.
Gary has a deep interest in psychology and philosophy; indeed, related concerns inform his fiction. He likes to think that every facet of his thought can be strung together by reading his assorted pieces, each adding to the whole - a 'vision', if you like, and if that doesn't sound too pretentious. But he's never been one to flinch away from ambition.
Gary also runs Gray Friar Press, whose first title, the mighty horror anthology Poe's Progeny, was released in autumn 2005. He has followed this with many other fine books, and is slowly building the company into a significant force in the field of dark literature.
Finally, Gary wishes to welcome all to his presence on the Web. Stick around, browse a while, buy a book.
