Hello. I'm Michael Hingston, an award-winning author and journalist based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. My writing has appeared in Wired, The Washington PostThe AtlanticThe Guardian, The Daily Beast, Hazlitt, Salon, The Walrus, and The Globe and Mail. I also write the Weird History column for Penthouse magazine.

My first novel, The Dilettantes, was a #1 regional bestseller. The Winnipeg Free Press said it “may well be the Great Canadian Comic Novel.” It was later translated into German.

I'm also the co-founder of Hingston & Olsen Publishing, the outfit responsible for the Short Story Advent Calendar.

My next book is about Calvin and Hobbes. It's called Let's Go Exploring (ECW Press, May 2018). You can pre-order it here.

I don't have an agent at the moment.

Wait, are you just here for my email address? Search no further:
