David Rice is a writer and animator from Northampton, MA. My interests cluster around horror, noir, SF, and the grotesque.

I'm currently working on a novel, possibly called ANGEL HOUSE, about three 29-year-old former best friends reunited in their haunted hometown, trying to get their shit together before going dangerously insane, while freaks from the Outskirts swarm in to smother them.
