Dathan Auerbach


Dathan Auerbach was born in the southern U.S. and has lived there for most of his life. In 2011, he began posting a series of stories to a forum dedicated to horror. After a Kickstarter campaign that raised over 1000% of its goal, he was able to release the revised and expanded versions of his story as the novel Penpal.


Autobiography for Quais du Polar

I’ve lived in the Southern U.S. my whole life. It’s a place made of slow heat, old farms, and asphalt fields. A place where folks want to be close despite the distance between them. I write about those wants. I write about bad luck and worse people.
