Paul Tremblay is an American horror author best known for penning novels like The Cabin at the End of the World, Survivor Song, and A Head Full of Ghosts. His books have earned him a legion of fans and praise from some of the top writers in the industry, including the great Stephen King.

Tremblay was born in June 1975 in Aurora, Colorado, in the United States. He spent the most of his formative years in Massachusettes before heading off to college. He would attend Providence College in Providence, Rhode Island and then move on to the University of Vermont where he earned his master’s degree in mathematics.

He would go on to teach mathematics at a private school just outside of Boston after graduation. He would also take on a role as the school’s junior varsity basketball coach. Despite all of his success as an author, Tremblay has continued to work and teach at this school.

Tremblay is a self-taught guitarist and once desired to become a musician of either Husker Du or Bob Mould’s caliber. Temblay’s niche is literary fiction, horror, mysteries, and thrillers.

He first started reading voraciously when he chanced upon a classic short story authored by Joyce Carol Oates. Some of the authors whose work greatly influenced Paul Tremblay include Shirley Hardie Jackson, Mark Z. Danielewski, Stephen King, Peter Straub, Joyce Carol Oates, Clive Barker, Kurt Vonnegut, Stewart O’Nan, Jonathan Lethem, Kelly Link, and Aimee Bender.

Paul Tremblay’s bibliography comprises of series of books, several standalone novels, collections, and more than ten novellas. Tremblay has co-authored literary works with many other American authors among them Dennis William Etchison, Dallas William Mayr, Steve Rasnic Tem, and Sean Wallace. Tremblay’s literary work has been published by many different publications among them The Los Angeles Times. Did you know that Paul Tremblay and Native American novelist Stephen Graham Jones published a 2014 book under a single pen name? The two truncated their names and created the pseudonym P. T. Jones to write Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn’t Fly.

Paul Tremblay debuted in the late 2000s. According to Tremblay, the inspiration for writing his debut novel came some years previously when he started envisioning a female client going to a private detective agency. The client’s case was weird case: someone stole the woman’s fingers and substituted them with those of another person. After a false start, Tremblay completed the manuscript after researching on the sleep disorder called narcolepsy.

This book was originally a standalone but is currently a part of a series, entitled Mark Genevich. The first edition was originally published in January 2009, titled The Little Sleep; and this book is shelved under the fiction, humor (particularly crime and noir fiction sub-genres), and mystery genres.

As the title of the series authored by Paul Tremblay implies, Mark Genevich is the featured protagonist. Genevich is a Boston-based private sleuth and a me-too version of Philip Marlowe; he is narcoleptic and has hypnagogia. The turning point in Paul Tremblay’s debut novel, The Little Sleep, is a high profile client whose fingers are missing. Genevich comes to his senses and his eye lights upon photos of the victim who is related to the district attorney and a family friend. The problem is that he cannot remember receiving them. Genevich is reconciling his penchant for hallucinations with a real-life situation, culminating in a hard-boiled whodunit that has been nominated for a notable literary award.
