About

William Grabowski is the author of 9 books (ghostwriter of more), most recently the techno-thriller INFINITY POINT, media tie-in CASTRO'S CADILLAC (from the screenplay by Michael Sayles, optioned for film by CuffLink Productions on September 12, 2016 ), Amazon bestseller BLACK LIGHT and TRACES OF OBLIVION—a collection of best short stories including his 2004 novel THE UNTOLD. He's been quoted by NBC2 News, is a popular guest on radio and podcasts, contributing editor with New York City's iconic LIBRARY JOURNAL magazine, and staff editor at Sinister Grin Press.

Emmy Award-winning investigative journalist George Knapp (CBS-TV) lauded Grabowski's work on syndicated radio show COAST TO COAST AM, and in May 2015 interviewed him on the program. Five years with World Fantasy Award-winner THE HORROR SHOW magazine earned Grabowski a Best Writer nomination from SPWAO for his interviews with bestselling authors Ray Bradbury, Dean Koontz, Clive Barker, Robert Bloch, Poppy Z. Brite, Peter Straub, Joe R. Lansdale, and many others. He's at work on a new novel.
