Author has written 29 stories for Horror, Sci-Fi, General, Nature, General, Humor, Life, and Fantasy.

R. Schlaack is a new author on the scene, looking to get some feedback on his short stories and novels. He is proficient in a variety of genres, but specializes in sci-fi and horror, often mixing elements to create more in-depth stories. When crafting a story, he focuses upon theme and mood, allowing the characters to develop through their interaction with the world of the story.

The authors most influential in his work include Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe, and H.P. Lovecraft, and reflect a keen interest in old "pulp" stories of the early-to-mid 20th century. He hopes to someday create a neo-pulp magazine of his own, with a mix of comics, short stories, and serials.

R. Schlaack welcomes anyone to read and enjoy his stories; he hopes to improve on his own writing and style through the feedback of other authors.
