Former technologist, world traveler, & storyteller.

Host: R. B. Wood

Michael Burke is a lifelong fan of fantasy, science fiction, and horror, propelled into these realms at a tender age when he discovered his father’s cache of pulp novels. A passion for comic books soon followed. In 2000, Michael co-founded the award-winning comic and collectible store, Comicazi, in Somerville, MA.
When not sorting the comic stacks at work, Michael can be found at home, releasing the hobgoblins of his mind into story form. He has short stories published in Whetstone:Amateur Magazine of Pulp Sword and Sorcery, The Horror Zine, Northern Frights, Witch House, Swords and Heroes, and the 80s-themed anthology, Totally Tubular Terrors. His weird western novella debuted in September 2022 as part of the Dark Tide series from Crystal Lake Publishing. A collection, Fragments of a Greater Darkness, is forthcoming in summer 2023.
