Brandon Getz was born and raised outside Pittsburgh, PA. In 2010, he earned an MFA in Fiction Writing from Eastern Washington University (Spokane, WA), where he was a fiction editor for Willow Springs literary magazine and taught creative writing to at-risk and homeless youth.
Since 2011, his writing has been published in more than twenty venues, including F(r)iction, Versal, and Burrow Press Review. His fiction has always existed in the borderlands between literary and genre, injecting weird and speculative elements into the mundane. A man’s midlife crisis unfolding in a taxidermy factory. A widower and his baby daughter visited by demons. A homunculus climbing out of the skull of a woman's sick father. His debut novel, Lars Breaxface: Werewolf in Space (SpaceBoy Books, 2019), represents a new direction in his fiction: embracing genre tropes and cranking the irreverence up to 11.
Brandon lives in Pittsburgh with his partner, son, and dog, and works as a professional copy editor. He is currently finishing a short story collection and planning a new novel project.
