James Lowder Biography

James Daniel Lowder (born January 2, 1963 in Quincy, Massachusetts) is an American author and editor, working frequently within the fantasy, dark fantasy, and horror genres, and on critical works exploring popular culture. Lowder also works in comic books. He has penned scripts for several companies, including Image, DC, Devil’s Due, and Desperado. A Ravenloft comic by Lowder was in the works before DC decided to end its relationship with TSR. His short work “Lost Loves”, from the Moonstone Monsters: Demons anthology, was a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award in 2004 for Best Illustrated Narrative. He contributed as a writer and consulting editor to the Worlds of Dungeons & Dragons comic book series, published by Devil’s Due. He became the editor for the monthly series Hack/Slash with issue #25 and continued with the series when it moved from Devil’s Due to Image. His pulp hero serial “The Corpse: Orphans of the Air” ran as an occasional back-up in Hack/Slash, starting in 2011..

His earliest novels were part of the Forgotten Realms and Ravenloft shared universe book lines, but beginning in the late 1990s he turned his attention more often to creator-owned projects. His novels include Prince of Lies, The Ring of Winter, and Spectre of the Black Rose (the latter with Voronica Whitney-Robinson), and his short fiction has appeared in such anthologies such as Shadows Over Baker Street, Truth Until Paradox, and Historical Hauntings. Some of his short stories have been cited in the honorable mention list of the annual Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror. He was an Origins Award finalist in the Best Short Fiction category for his 2003 novella, “The Night Chicago Died”, a story that featured the debut of his mystery man character, The Corpse. His novels have been translated into more than a dozen languages.

Beginning in 2010, Lowder contributed to an annual “Games to Gift” holiday segment for the show “Lake Effect” on WUWM, Milwaukee Public Radio. He appeared as himself in episode 302 (“Man Beasts”) on the television series Weird or What?, discussing the history of werewolf lore and the Beast of Bray Road. Lowder also served as a puppeteer for the low budget zombie puppet musical Misfit Heights (2012).

As an editor, Lowder directed several best-selling book lines for TSR, Inc. in the late 1980s and early 1990s, including the Forgotten Realms, Ravenloft, and Dark Sun. In 1999, Peter Corless brought Lowder in to oversee the Pendragon fiction line for Green Knight Publishing; Lowder continued to reprint older Athurian works and also produced the original short story collections The Doom of Camelot (2000) and Legends of the Pendragon (2002) and the original novel Exiled from Camelot (2001). He served as executive editor for Green Knight Publishing’s line of Arthurian fiction — the Pendragon fiction series — and as a consulting editor for CDS Books on their City of Heroes novels. Lowder has edited more than a dozen anthologies, with subjects ranging from King Arthur to superheroes to zombies. He has won several Origins Awards and an ENnie Award, and been shortlisted for an International Horror Guild Award for these projects. Though some of these anthologies have been published in connection with role-playing game product lines, they often contain only creator-copyrighted stories. This makes them unusual, as game publishers frequently insist on work for hire contracts for such projects. Lowder edited a set of zombie anthologies based on the All Flesh Must Be Eaten game, beginning with The Book of All Flesh (2001); these were the first fiction books from Eden Studios. His final short story collection for the series was The Book of Final Flesh (2003). Lowder edited a 2003 anthology of short stories based on the Silver Age Sentinels game from Guardians of Order. He also worked on Astounding Hero Tales (2007) for Hero Games and Worlds of their Own (2008) for Paizo Publishing.
