From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
John Skipp is a bestselling author and screenwriter whose eleven books have sold millions of copies and are reprinted in nine languages. His early works (co-written with Craig Spector) were considered seminal to the "splatterpunk" style of modern horror fiction; Skipp split with Spector in 1993 to begin his successful solo career. Skipp is currently involved in several film projects, functioning as writer, director, and producer. In September 2007, Leisure Press released his novel The Long Last Call, together with his novella, Conscience. This marked Skipp's return to horror fiction, after many years devoted to musical and other endeavors.
He edited the 2006 anthology Mondo Zombie (published by Cemetery Dance Publications) which won the Bram Stoker Award for Best Anthology. The collection included his short story "God Save The Queen" which was co-written by Marc Levinthal.
In December, 2008, John Skipp released the e-novel and audiobook download, Opposite Sex, under the pen name "Gina McQueen," through new publisher Ravenous Romance. Skipp also released a new novel, "Jake's Wake," co-authored by Cody Goodfellow, from Dorchester Publishing's Leisure Books.
