My name is Roland Allnach, and I'm a multi-award winning author of fiction that courts the surreal.  My published books include two anthologies, 'Remnant' (sci-fi and speculative) and 'Oddities & Entities' (horror, supernatural, and paranormal).  My third book, 'Prism', will release in 2014.  I've also published numerous short stories.

  My taste for the written word is eclectic, as my short stories attest.  If there's a general feel to my fiction, it's a sense of the surreal, with some 'darkness', most often portraying strange people in perhaps even stranger circumstances.  My aspiration is to craft compelling characters in stories of sufficient depth to deliver additional insight upon repeated readings.  As an author, I try to think of how a story presents itself not only on the initial read, but on a second or third reading as well.  While most of my writing falls among various genres, I've done some mainstream fiction as well, just to keep things well rounded.
