About D.T. Griffith
Fascinated by all things dark, gritty, and dystopian, D.T. Griffith lives on the periphery of the horror and dark fiction genres. Like all of his other art, his fiction and nonfiction writing draw inspiration from classic and modern works alike, spanning a full range of literary masters, surrealist painters, raw comedians, and punk rock.
He has worked as a professional designer, illustrator, and writer since the mid-1990s in the marketing, branding, and communication fields. Educated in fine arts and writing, and a professional in the corporate communication and eCommerce fields, he enjoys a keen passion for writing dark fiction, noir, and horror during his free time where his brain is permitted to explore its deviant side without retribution.
D.T. Griffith holds a BFA in fine arts and an MFA in creative and professional writing. He resides in his home state of Connecticut, USA with his incredibly talented and supportive wife, Melissa, and their pug, Pretzel.

HEaR TODaY … The disease known as MNG-U has staked its claim on humanity and broken the world forever. Most of those who survive have been robbed of their hearing, deafened in this quiet apocalypse. Around the globe, people do what they can to exist in the terrifying silence. Whether in isolation or in new communities, they must persevere amidst a changed and brutal landscape that is now barely recognisable as a world they once knew. Normality has new boundaries; the rules rewritten in the name of survival.
From the world of Dave Jeffery’s A QUIET APOCALYPSE come ten unique stories with one, ultimate vision …
To show what it takes to endure A Silent Dystopia...

Twenty-six dark fiction authors from around the world each take a letter and use their unique voices to weave magical stories of horror and the fantastic.
The Truth, at last…speaks!
The first in a collection of anthologies to be published by Western Legends throughout 2013 under the banner “Tres Librorum Prohibitorum”.
A lexicon of demons full-to-bursting with great writers (some new, some award nominated, some award winning) from all around the world.
But the Demonologia is something more.
Much more in fact than the sum of its parts.
A French nobleman from the 15th Century.
Gilles de Montmorency-Laval, Baron de Rais, who was a serial killer and heavily into the occult.
At his trial in 1438, it was said that de Rais had sought out individuals who were purported to summon demons. These summoning words were put into a Grimoire fashioned from human skin and which was commonly known as the Demonologia Biblica. A book which mysteriously vanished after de Rais’ execution but which is often talked about in ‘Dark Circles’. Imagine the power one could wield with such a weapon!
Though who knows – maybe it never existed in the first place and was just a figment of someone’s warped imagination...I guess we may never know...
...so until that book is found, turn the page and immerse yourself in the unique demonic worlds these twenty-six authors have created for you...
...get thee behind me, demon...

The grey wolves howled and scratched at our doors until we let them in. We fed them, tamed them and made them our companions. For millennia they were hunters at our side. We evolved together and survived with each other. We built myths and religions on their backs. From lycans to dog-headed gods like anubis. Yet we were always the master, they the servant. That is until recently when evolution has played a horrifying trick. Now our roles are reversed. but some of us are fighting back. The story of the mankind is far from over and the story of the new dog masters has only just begun. Though one thing is certain... Man's best friend has become Mankind's worst enemy.

Writing about Plain, the author David T. Griffith said: “Plain started out as a four-page story in which I challenged myself to make a ridiculously mundane character fascinating. I wanted something more than a slice of life short story, so I added the voices Essy hears to create an unhealthy catalyst to her story. A traumatic event in her past that she orchestrated helped establish her psychological and confidence issues and serve as the driving force at the core of the story. It all grew from there.”
