Carlos E. Rivera
Carlos is a Costa Rican gay writer and former English teacher.
As an anxious, introverted kid growing up in Costa Rica during the 80s and 90s, he always felt like something of an outsider. His refuge was escaping into and devouring sci-fi, fantasy, drama, crime thrillers, and above all things, horror. For years, these books, movies, comics, and even video games became his life.
He dove into the horror-next-door of Stephen King, the ineffable cosmic abominations of H.P. Lovecraft, the disturbing atmosphere of Silent Hill, the dreamlike imagery of David Lynch, the sheer unnerving strangeness of Junji Ito, and many more—they got mixed in with his country’s folk stories and his own experiences, resulting in what he describes as a peculiar blend that readers might feel is familiar but askew.
