About

I'm an award-winning author of history-inspired mythic fantasy, alternate history, and retrofuture science fiction. Family affection, friendship, romantic friendship, and romance often occur in my stories. I have brought out a couple of million words of speculative fiction since 2002. Before then, I was a journalist, and I continue to work as a history writer.

You can see links to all my fiction at duskpeterson.com.

I'm a full-time writer. Publishers pay me for my nonfiction, but in order to carve out time to write and release fiction, I depend on donations. This Patreon account is for folks who would like to make a monthly donation to support me in that mission.

Current projects

I'm in the process of posting stories here from The Awakening (Dungeon Guards).

You can see my latest releases and upcoming fiction on my home page. I post free online serializations of my older novels and short fiction at Archive of Our Own.


Reader comments on my fiction

"So much depth within the intricate world building, yet also a satisfying tale about love. Love between individuals and love for country." —A. B. Gayle.

"Even in Dusk Peterson's darkest stories there is hope and, when it's needed, redemption. . . . These are powerful stories, beautifully written, with characters who will linger in your memory." —C. S. McClellan.

"There's something very special about Dusk's dark fic. Dark, very, but there's this smidgen of light in every cavern Dusk throws a reader, and the brightness of that light is practically overwhelming by the time you get to the end of the novel, and it is like crawling to the opening of a cavern. It's like getting a miracle." —K. M. Frontain.


This is a community

Some of you already know each other. I hope that all of you will get to know each other through my community board and through comments to my posts. Talk to each other here! Discuss the stories! Link to your fan fiction and fan art of my stories!

If, however, you are an utter introvert (like me), then you are also entirely welcome here. Have fun reading quietly.
