5 Things You Don't Know About Geoff Gander

1. Geoff started writing regularly for fun – mainly roleplaying games - in the mid-1990s. The Tunnelers is his debut as a professional writer.

2. Almost all of the characters in Geoff’s stories are based on real people, and at least one character in every story has one of his own traits.

3. In homage to one of his biggest influences, H.P. Lovecraft, at least one character is every story has either an academic background, or is naturally introverted and studious.

4. Geoff is sort of ashamed to admit that he can quote large portions of Monty Python’s Quest for the Holy Grail.

5. Although Geoff writes a lot of horror fiction, he doesn’t like most horror movies. His favourite movie genres are adventure and comedy.

Check out his new release:
The Tunnelers

When a traumatized mining foreman is placed under the psychiatric care of Dr. Vincent Armstrong, the doctor thinks he has started just another shift. But as the victim begins to remember what drove him temporarily insane, Armstrong’s interest becomes personal, and he makes a series of discoveries that threaten to tear apart his carefully constructed scientific view of the world, and show in horrifying clarity that his patient is anything but delusional.

As Armstrong’s world falls apart, his recovering patient learns that he has not escaped the horrors he encountered underground, and that no place on earth is truly safe from the “Tunnelers.”


  1. Characters based on real people? Cool. I pull mine out of the air; however, I have given traits of real people to characters in the past -- it's what makes Miss Havana so interesting. Your book sounds great, Geoff!

  2. The creepiest things seem to live underground! Your story sounds intriguing and I love the cover. Makes me want to open the book and see what's hiding inside.

  3. Thanks for the kind words! I love that cover, too!
