R. K. Duncan is an author mostly of fantasy, with a dash of science-fiction and horror thrown in. He writes about fairies and gods and ghosts from a few rooms of a venerable West Philadelphia row home. In the shocking absence of any cats, he lavishes spare attention on cast iron cookware and his long-suffering and supportive partner. Before settling on writing, he studied linguistics and philosophy at Haverford college.
