Welcome to Douglas E Wright’s website. Douglas is a quiet horror writer, whom for thirty years, worked at Canada Post. Over the years, he has traveled and lived in various parts of Canada, from Iqaluit Nunavut to Springdale Newfoundland to Whitehorse Yukon to Victoria BC.
From these travels he picked up local lore and created dark stories from the scenery and the people he’s met along the way.
Douglas writes dark fantasy and supernatural horror, sometimes with a literary bent called quiet horror.
His short stories have been published in: Britain’s Horror Express, HUB and Thirteen Magazine: USA’s Black Ink Horror Magazine, Escaping Elsewhere and Mount Zion Press. He also has stories in the anthologies ‘Raw Meat’ by CWW Press and ‘Enter the Realm’ by Larry Sells. His hardback Romantic Suspense novella ‘BOOGALOOS’, along with his chapbook ‘SWEET THINGS’ was published by Sideshow Press and sold out in four days in late 2009.
His list of influences is extensive. He likes styles of Nancy Kilpatrick to Ray Bradbury, from David Morrell to Kafka and from Joe Hill to Charles Dickens. The films he enjoys are just as diverse. He likes movies and their directors such as Tim Burton’s ‘Corpse Bride’ to Frank Capra’s ‘It’s a Wonderful Life.’
Douglas also spends a great deal of time working and tinkering on his website. He likes horror conferences, collecting advanced horror movie posters and signed horror books as well as Aurora horror models.
