Shawn M. Garrett is the co-editor of PSEUDOPOD and either the dumbest smart man or the smartest dumb man you ever met. Thanks to a youth spent in the company of Richard Matheson, Vincent Price, Carl Kolchak & Jupiter Jones, he has pursued a life-long interest in the thrilling, the horrific and the mysterious – be it in print, film, art or audio. He has worked as a sewerage groundskeeper, audio transcription editor, pornography enabler, insurance letter writer – he was once paid by Marvel Comics to pastiche the voice of Stan Lee in promotional materials and he spends his days - post COVID - looking for work while translating obscure Decadent Literature (two of his translations - PRINCE NARCISSUS & OTHER STORIES by Robert Scheffer and MONADA by Gabriel Mourey are currently available from Snuggly Books). He now lives near the ocean in a small metal box and he hopes that becoming a Yuggothian brain-in-a-jar is a viable future, as there is NO WAY he will ever read all the books he has on his lists, or listen to all the music he wants to hear. Everything that he is he owes to his late sister Susan, a shining star in the pre-internet world of fan-fiction, who left this world unexpectedly in 2010. Shawn was brought on as an Associate Editor in 2008, and he became Editor in 2011.
