Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future Contest, and his first novel, The Dwelling, was a 1989 Bram Stoker Award nominee. his short fiction has appeared in most horror publications, including Cemetery Dance, New Blood, Iniquities, Grue, 2 AM, and the anthologies October Dreams and Cold Blood.Review:
What They're Saying About The Dwelling:"Elliott doesn't give a guy a chance to catch his breath. He's got some of the very best scare scenes I've read.... [The Dwelling is] a hell of a book!" --Gary Brandner, author of The Howling series and Cameron's Closet"The Dwelling will take you into those cold, dark places where fear rules. Chilling, disturbing, and original.... A nonstop trip through nightmare country!" --Cemetery Dance"A harrowing and compelling first novel. Anyone who can read through the prologue and claim they were not the least bit affected should win an Oscar!" --New Blood Magazine"Reminiscent of Joe R. Lansdale or Robert R. McCammon at their best. [The Dwelling is a] superbly written first novel by a writer to look for in the future. Highly recommended!" --2 AM Magazine"The Dwelling is a rickety ride on a loco nag, gap-toothed and grinning. Just close your eyes, hang on and go with it." --Morgan Fields, author of Playtime and Deadly Harvest"A masterpiece of dense and natural description... Elliott's control of the details of setting is outstanding. [The Dwelling is a] thoroughly entertaining first novel!" --Desert Sun"The Dwelling will rivet you, leave you gasping for air. If you read one book this year, make it The Dwelling. Definitely not for the faint at heart!" --Haunts"Elliott has a talent for cutting right to the creepy-crawly nasty things that fester in our collective subconscious." --Terry Black, Dead Heat, HBO's Tales From the Crypt"One of the most tantalizing horror writers I've ever had the pleasure to read." --Marjorie Talarico, The Wiccan Voice"Elliott inexorably pulls you into the story, then lowers the boom. A compellingly authentic new voice!" --T. M. Spell, editor, Thin Boundaries
