Roland Allnach

After more than twenty years of hospital night shifts, Roland Allnach has witnessed life from a slightly different angle. He’s been working to develop his writing career, drawing creatively from literary classics, history, and mythology.

His short stories, one of which was nominated for the Pushcart Prize, have appeared in many publications. His first anthology, 'Remnant', blending science fiction and speculative fiction, saw publication in 2010. In 2012 he followed with 'Oddities & Entities', a collection spanning the supernatural, paranormal, horror and speculative genres. His third book, 'Prism', published in 2014, follows a winding road through diverse genres and narrative forms. In 2015 he saw publication of two more books, the dystopian science fiction novel 'The Digital Now' and the his first foray into nonfiction with 'The Writer's Primer: A Practical Guide for Aspiring Authors Seeking Publication.' For 2016 he returned to stranger realms with 'Oddities & Entities 2: Vessels.'

Roland’s books have received unanimous critical praise and have been honored with more than a dozen national book awards, including honors from National Indie Excellence, Foreword Reviews, Readers’ Favorite, Feathered Quill Reviews and Pacific Book Review.

When not immersed in his imagination, Roland can be found at his website, rolandallnach.com, along with a wealth of information about his stories and experiences as an author. Writing aside, his joy in life is the time he spends with his family.
