 Craig Clevenger Biography

Craig Clevenger is an American author of contemporary fiction. Born 1964 in Dallas, Texas, he grew up in Southern California where he studied English at California State University, Long Beach.

He regularly places short fiction in journals like Black Clock, and anthologies like the Akashic Noir series.

Clevenger slips in and out of altered realities, using conversations with psychologists to help us diagnose his patient, our protagonist, as well as hallucinatory binges from the latest synthetic drugs to hit the street. Weaving lyrical prose with layered settings, his work is dense and smart.

His work has been classified by some as neo-noir and has received praise from such authors as Chuck Palahniuk and Irvine Welsh.

Clevenger lists among his influences Jim Thompson, James M. Cain, Edgar Allan Poe, Richard Matheson, Italo Calvino, Kb Abe, Steve Erickson, Mark Danielewski, Will Christopher Baer, Seth Morgan, James Ellroy, Michael Hogan, John O'Brien, Michael Ventura and Rupert Thomson.

Currently living in San Francisco, Clevenger is at work on an untitled third novel based on his short story The Fade. He shares a fan base with fellow authors Will Christopher Baer and Stephen Graham Jones.
