Brendan Connell

Brendan Connell (born 1970) is an American author and translator. Though his work often falls into the horror and fantasy genres, it has also often been called unclassifiable and avant-garde.[1][2] His style has been compared to that of J.K. Huysmans[3] and Angela Carter.[4] Some of his shorter fiction, such as that contained in his collection Metrophilias, has been referred to as prose poetry.[5]

Influences he has cited, include Balzac and Ponson du Terrail.[6] He has also written many lyrics for the Serbian band Kodagain.[6]
