Alaric "Al Necro" Cabiling is a Filipino National and naturalized US Citizen.  He has been writing essays, poems, and short stories since he was twelve years old.  His earliest works in short fiction were in the horror genre.  Authors such as Ray Bradbury and Edgar Allan Poe inspired him to write dark fiction later in life.

As Al Necro, Alaric began writing articles promoting the international extreme music scene.  He has written close to two hundred articles for heavily-trafficked site Cvlt Nation, and over a hundred articles for UK fanzine Echoes & Dust.

Alaric is also a web designer, a manuscript consultant and freelance writer for Dewar PR, where he drafts bios and press releases.

Alaric believes that a cultivation of the arts is integral in a world where 'life stresses' take away life's simple pleasures.

Modern literary short fiction is not unusual: many attempt it; relatively few do it well - especially in the style of the gothic horror approach so aptly explored by Poe, Hawthorne, and other greats. That's why it's such a pleasure to read Insanity by Increments: it takes some of the methods and madness of these greats and moves a step further, presenting nine short stories of contemplation and quiet horror. - Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review

Cabiling is a master at creating moods, especially those which border on the macabre, the obsessive and the melancholy. Each word seems selected carefully, examined and put in place just so, and the flawed and flailing characters he peoples his work with become almost familiar to the reader as he himself is...and that's a pretty scary thing, and the handiwork of a powerful and creative writer. - Jack Magnus, Readers Favorite
