Dan Stout is the author of The Carter Archives series of urban fantasy detective novels, including Titanshade and its sequels Titan’s Day and Titan Song. He lives in Columbus, Ohio, where he writes noir with a twist of magic and a disco chaser. His prize-winning fiction draws on his travels throughout Europe, Asia, and the Pacific Rim, as well as an employment history spanning everything from subpoena server to assistant well driller.
Dan’s stories have appeared in publications such as The Saturday Evening Post, Nature, and Mad Scientist Journal.
