Author Biography

I am a horror/dark fiction author with an eye towards filmmaking. While I am fairly new to the public eye, I am not new to writing and have several projects that I am currently reworking. I would describe my preferred genre(s) essentially as dark fiction, which includes fantasy and science fiction, as well as horror. I'm grateful to all of my followers and readers; I make every effort to respond to each message or comment I receive. I'm hoping to begin attending events in the near future, such as horror and sci-fi conventions, where I will be able to meet many new friends!
I am always open to interviews, appearances, etc, so please feel free to contact me with any serious proposals or inquiries. Thank you for your time, consideration, and support!

Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite

“Whispers from Hell” by Edward V’Kanty is an anthology of nine short horror and supernatural stories, plus the prologue to his upcoming novel “Dark Heritage”. The short stories in this collection are titillating and diverse. The first story, also called 'Whispers from Hell', is written in the form of one side of a conversation, with the reader being the unspoken counterpart. It is an interesting and unusual format for a short story, and in this case it works well. The narrator is speaking from Hell, at the side of his “master”, a demonic creature, and his tale is one of sorrow and woe. 'Kylie’s Reality' is about a ghost who attaches herself to a young woman who took a shortcut through a cemetery one night, to get out of a downpour as quickly as possible; she should have just taken her time. Other stories in this collection concern a massive infestation of subterranean multi-legged, carnivorous leech-like organisms which literally consume an entire town full of people in a few short hours; unanticipated consequences of coveting the alleged fountain of youth; beautiful vampiresses who have an unusual method for recruiting new members to their pack; the horrors which can be visited upon buyers of homes built over a relocated cemetery; and several other off-beat tales of horror and the supernatural.

Edward V’Kanty has demonstrated in this collection his considerable talents covering a broad range of topics and styles in the darker fiction genres. Each of the tales in this book is unlike any of the others; it appears V’Kanty can find horror in just about any situation, and develop an intriguing tale showcasing that horror. While he is fairly new to the public eye, he has been writing for a while, and currently has several projects underway. Edward V’Kanty, by this collection, has burst upon the scene, announcing to the world his intention and potential to be around for a long time.
