Curtis M. Lawson

Based in Salem, Massachusetts, Curtis M. Lawson is a writer of thoughtful, lucid cosmic horror, bleak and visually-beautiful, but firmly rooted in and inspired by real world troubles. 
His latest novel, Black Heart Boys’ Choir, follows troubled teenage composer Lucien Beaumont as he struggles to complete his father’s mysterious final composition, while enduring an eroding homeline and the toxic high school culture of his small weird-fiction town. Addressing relevant themes like adolescent alienation and rage, art as both cure and catalyst, mass shootings, defensive elitism, artistic authenticity, BHBC is in part a testament to just how far artists are willing to go to realize their work — raising literal hell and sacrificing everything if necessary.
