Bruce Blake

Fantasy and urban paranormal horror


Bruce Blake lives on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. When pressing issues like shovelling snow and building igloos don't take up his spare time, Bruce can be found taking the dog sled to the nearest coffee shop to work on his short stories and novels.

Actually, Victoria, B.C. is only a couple hours north of Seattle, Wash., where more rain is seen than snow. Since snow isn't really a pressing issue, Bruce spends more time trying to remember to leave the "u" out of words like "colour" and "neighbour" then he does shovelling. The father of two, Bruce is also the trophy husband of a burlesque diva.

Bruce's first short story, "Another Man's Shoes" was published in the Winter 2008 edition of Cemetery Moon. "Yardwork" was made into a podcast in Oct., 2011 by Pseudopod. Bruce's first Icarus Fell novel, "On Unfaithful Wings", was published in Dec., 2011 with the follow up, "All Who Wander Are Lost", coming out in July, 2012.

He published his Khirro's Journey epic fantasy trilogy, Blood of the King,  Spirit of theKing and Heart of the King in 2012 and 2013. He published three books in his second fantasy series, The Small Gods, in 2015. They include When Shadows Fall, The Darkness Comes, and the third book in the series, And Night Descends.
