Hello. I'm Michael Hingston, an award-winning author and publisher based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

I’m the author of two books: a history and analysis of Calvin and Hobbes called Let's Go Exploring (ECW, 2018), and the novel The Dilettantes (Freehand, 2013).

My journalism has appeared in Wired, The Washington PostThe AtlanticThe GuardianHazlitt, The Walrus, and The Globe and Mail. I also write the Weird History column for Penthouse magazine.

I'm also the co-founder of Hingston & Olsen Publishing, the outfit responsible for the Short Story Advent Calendar and the Ghost Box. The Washington Post called H&O "a little Canadian publisher whose creations remind us what e-books can’t do.”

Agent-wise, my writing for kids is represented by Stacey Kondla of The Rights Factory. (I don't have an agent for my adult work.)

Wait, are you just here for my email address? Search no further: hingston@gmail.com.
