Michael Pogach is an author and college professor. His most recent novel, the Gothic thriller SLIP, has been hailed as “a riveting thriller with a provocative central mystery” (Holly M. Wendt, author of “The Bolton Strid”) and “a thriller-mystery with a hint of the paranormal and a protagonist that will take a bite out of you from page one” (Gwendolyn N. Nix, author of I Have Asked To Be Where No Storms Come). He’s also the author of the dystopian thriller Rafael Ward series: THE SPIDER IN THE LAUREL (a 2018 Kindle Book Award finalist), THE LONG OBLIVION (a 2019 Kindle Book Award semi-finalist), THE TYRANT GODS, and THE HIDDEN EMPIRE.

His short stories can be found in Third Wednesday, New Plains Review, Blackest Spells, and more, alongside authors such as Marge Piercy and Richard Nell. He’s been called “one of speculative fiction’s rising stars,” by C.T. Phipps, author of The Rules of Supervillany.


Michael also conducts fiction writing workshops at local bookstores and cafes, as well as high schools, colleges, and conferences. He has appeared at Arcadia University, Borough of Manhattan Community College, The Doylestown Bookshop, the AWP Conference & Bookfair, the Montgomery County Community College Annual Writers Conference, and more.
