Alaric Cabiling is a freelance writer, published author, and the chief editor of a music fanzine called Winter Desolation of Death.


In 2009, Praenomen Press of Richmond, VA released his debut collection of poetry entitled The Darkest Day.  In March of 2015, he independently released his critically acclaimed collection of literary short fiction, Insanity By Increments.


He would forge ahead with his literary career and only a year after the release of Insanity By Increments, followed-up by independently-releasing the widely talked-about collection of stories Redefining Darkness.


Now a widely-acknowledged purveyor of dark fiction, in 2017, he released his darkest collection yet, the aptly-titled The Claws of Perdition.


Alaric is an avowed fan of writers Peter Straub, Junot Diaz, William Trevor, and James Salter.


Besides being an avid practitioner of the short story medium, he is also staff writer for heavily-trafficked sites Cvlt Nation and Echoes & Dust where he reviews albums, interviews artists and musicians, and covers the international extreme music scene for fans.


In May 2017, he started his own fanzine called Winter Desolation of Death for fans of underground extreme metal.
