Thomas F. Monteleone

Thomas F. Monteleone (b. 1946) is an American science fiction author and horror fiction author. His first novel, "Seeds of Change" was the lead-off title in the critically unsuccessful "Laser Books" line of science fiction titles (see for details), but he went on to become a popular writer of supernatural thrillers. He is no relation to Chicago Outfit mobster Tom Monteleone.

Monteleone has been a professional writer since 1972, and 4-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award. He has published more than 100 short stories in numerous magazines and anthologies. His stories have been nominated for many awards, and have appeared in lots of best-of-the-year compilations.

His notorious column of opinion and entertainment, "The Mothers And Fathers Italian Association," currently appears in "Cemetery Dance" magazine. He is the editor of seven anthologies, including the highly acclaimed "Borderlands" series edited with his wife, Elizabeth, of which, "Borderlands 5", won a Bram Stoker Award in 2003.

He has written for the stage and television, having scripts produced for American Playhouse (which won him the Bronze Award at the International TV and Film Festival of New York and the Gabriel Award), George Romero’s "Tales from the Darkside", and a series on Fox TV entitled "Night Visions". He has written many feature-length screenplays, none of which have been produced. Of his thirty-six books, his novel, "The Blood of the Lamb" received the 1993 Bram Stoker Award, and The New York Times Notable Book of the Year Award. His four collections of selected short fiction are "Dark Stars and Other Illuminations" (1981), "Rough Beasts and Other Mutations" (2003),"The Little Brown Book of Bizarre Stories" (2004), and "Fearful Symmetries" (2004),which won the 2004 Bram Stoker Award.

T"he Reckoning" (2000), a sequel to "The Blood of the Lamb", and "The Eyes of the Virgin" (2002) have been published by Forge. His omnibus volume of essays about the book and film industries entitled T"he Mothers And Fathers Italian Association" was recently published by Borderlands Press ( and won the 2003 Bram Stoker Award for Non-Fiction.
