David J. Schow
David J. Schow (b. 1955) is an American author of horror novels, short stories, and screenplays. He would prefer not to be remembered solely for writing the screenplay for The Crow, assembling the exhaustive Outer Limits Companion, or coining the term
splatterpunk (although he is perversely proud of getting that word into the Oxford English Dictionary). His short stories have been regularly selected for over 25 volumes of
Year’s Best anthologies across three decades and have won the World Fantasy Award and the ultra-rare Dimension Award from Twilight Zone magazine.
