About

Tom FahyThomas Fahy’s Dining with Madmen: Fat, Food, and the Environment in 1980s Horror grew out of a lifelong passion for horror. His young adult horror novels, Sleepless and The Unspoken, both received American Library Awards for Reluctant Young Readers. His edited collection, The Philosophy of Horror, which the New York Journal of Books called “an intelligently written, perceptive, engrossing work,” has earned high praise in journals, newspapers, and magazines across the country. And The Writing Dead: Talking Terror with TV’s Top Horror Writers features original interviews with the writers of today’s most frightening and fascinating shows such as American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, and The X-Files.

Fahy has been interviewed about horror by numerous publications, including Salon, as well as by several radio hosts in the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, and Malaysia. He has also been a featured guest on several episodes of the Spanish television series Creadores Prodigiosos.

Fahy has written extensively about literature, film, television, and popular culture. He has interviewed Aaron Sorkin and Alan Ball for his edited collections about their work—Considering Aaron Sorkin and Considering Alan Ball—and he has published on subjects ranging from Paris Hilton to Truman Capote and Tracy Letts.

When he needs a break from all things scary, Fahy is a professor of English and director of the Graduate Program in English at Long Island University, Post. He is also a classical pianist and performs regularly with the New York Piano Society. He has recently played concerts at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Merkin Concert Hall, and other venues in New York City.
