Brian Evenson
Author Brian Evenson was born August 12, 1966 in Ames, Iowa. His dad was a longtime physics professor at Brigham Young University and was later an administrator. While a young man, Brian served a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Switzerland and France. Brian has a PhD and MA, from the University of Washington, and a BA, that he got from BYU.

In the year 1995, he got an NEA Fellowship. This same year, he was told by Brigham Young University that if he continued writing fiction in the same vein as his first novel, they would fire him. He would up leaving of his own free will in order to teach at Oklahoma State University. He has also held teaching jobs at University of Denver, Brown University, and Syracuse University.

“Last Days” won the ALA/RUSA prize for the Best Horror novel of 2009. “Two Brothers” won an O. Henry Award, and other works have gotten O. Henry honorable mentions.

Brian writes science fiction and horror. His debut novel, called “Father of Lies” was released in the year 1998. He also writes under the name BK Evenson.

“Father of Lies” is the first stand alone novel and was released in the year 1998. At the urging of Provost Fochs’s wife, he reluctantly goes to see Dr. Feshtig, a therapist.

Provost relays all of his crimes in horrible detail. Saying things about how God had told him where evil had made its mark, good had to follow, burning out the evil to purify the body. Fochs describes one of his dreams where he sodomizes two males from the parish to try to exorcise their sins. Right after, two boys step forward and accuse Fochs of this very deed. One of his other dreams, he dismembers and strangles a young girl out in the woods close to his house, where a kid from his parish winds up being found later.

While the provost’s dreams are found to be reality and the accusations against him become public knowledge, the church has to respond. In an effort to protect one of its own, and protect itself, in turn, the Committee for the Strengthening of the Church demands that Dr. Feshtig relinquish his notes on Provost Fochs. This is the start of the church’s all-out attempt to try to cover up for the provost. It begins the race to the novel’s last revelation of whether good (in the form of the law) or evil (in the provost’s hands, and by association, the church) is going to prevail.

“Dark Property” is the second stand alone novel and was released in the year 2002. A woman moves across a desert waste, while carrying a dying baby, moving off toward a fortress that harbors a mysterious resurrection cult. Menaced by some scavengers, she starts suspecting that the reality inside of the fortress might be much more disturbing than the blasted environment that is outside.

While she makes her way to the city of dead, she is followed by a bounty hunter who cuts a bloody swath toward her.

“Open Curtain” is the third stand alone novel and was released in the year 2006. When a troubled teen, named Rudd, goes off on a school project, he comes across the series of articles from a 1902 New York Times that talks about a vicious murder that was committed by Brigham Young’s grandson. Digging into the Mormon’s ritual of blood sacrifice that was used in the murders, Rudd, alone with Lael (his newly discovered half-brother) get swept up in the atavistic and psychological effects of this ancient and violent ritual.

While the present and the past start becoming an increasingly tangled knot, Rudd is discovered at a remote campsite which is the scene of a multiple murder. He has few memories of what happened and minor injuries. Lyndi, the daughter of the victims, attempts helping Rudd to recover his memory and they, together, find a strength that is unique to survivors of horrible tragedies.

Rudd is desperate to keep Lyndi safe and unable to allow the past keep still. He attempts to manipulate their Mormon wedding in an effort to trick the priests (and God) by giving Lyndi and him new names, ones that match the victim and killer in the century old murder. The nightmare has just started.

“Last Days” is the fourth stand alone novel and was released in the year 2009. The book is set in an underground religious cult and is a down-the-rabbit-hole detective story. Kline, who is a detective made to solve a killing inside an underground religious cult. While Kline gets more involved with the group, and he starts realizing that the stakes are much grander than he ever could have thought.

Trying to make his way through a maze of misinformation, lies, and threats, Kline finds that his survival is going to depend on one act of sheer will.

“Immobility” is the fifth stand alone novel and was released in the year 2012. You open up your eyes and things already appear to be happening without you. You do not remember where you have been, or even who you are. You just know the world has changed, a catastrophe has ruined what once existed, but you are unable to remember what existed before. You have been paralyzed from the waist down, apparently, but you don’t remember that either.

A guy claiming he is your friend informs you that your services are required. There is something vital that has been stolen, yet what he has told you about it does not quite add up. You have to retrieve it or there is something bad that will happen. You must get the thing back quickly, so they will be able to freeze you before your own time runs out.

Before you know it, you are getting carried through a wrecked landscape on the backs of two different men in hazard suits that do not seem at all like you. They are moving towards something you do not comprehend that might just be the death of you.

Welcome to Josef Horkai’s life.
