Tomorrow is the big day! Listen in when we talk horror with one of the gruesomest, goriest, garishly great guests we’ve had so far on Haunted Nights LIVE!

nikki William Malmborg has been publishing short stories in horror magazines and dark fiction anthologies since 2002. In addition, four of his novels, JIMMY, TEXT MESSAGE, NIKKI’S SECRET and DARK HARVEST, are all available, as is a short story collection titled SCRAPING THE BONE that features five previously published and five original tales of horror. When not writing William caters to the whims of Toby and Truman, two cats who reside with him in Wheaton, IL. When asked to further enlighten us on his history, this is what William had to say:malm4

” After having found a gateway between worlds during an impromptu scientific experiment, I’ve become what I like to call ‘a slider’, one who eventually came across a world where William Malmborg was a successful horror author who seemed to have an endless supply of gorgeous ‘lady friends’.  Liking that image, I decided to stay, disposing of his body through a wormhole, only to learn that several of the women were crazy, the credit card debt was astronomical, and that his books hadn’t been selling as well as they used to. Losing his apartment, I moved back in with his parents where I tried my hands at penning a novel, only to produce one titled DARK HARVEST that no one seemed to like. Following that, I got a job working nights at a roadside help hotline, my hopes being to eliminate the credit card debt I inherited while also saving enough to buy a house.  Fortunately, while at his parents house, I found a box of manuscripts that the real William Malmborg had written years earlier, the first of which was titled BLIND EYE.  Story-wise, the novel was solid, editing wise, not so much, so, rather than publishing it right away, I used some money to hire an editor and book cover designer, both of which will, hopefully, help in finalizing the novel, and, soon, recharge the career I foolishly took over so that I can actually live the life of a bestselling author that is constantly surrounded by beautiful women.”

Yeah… we love this guy!
