A versatile and diversified writer, David Boyle has written three short story collections, published by independent presses. His most recent compilation is Truth Hurts (Adelaide Books, 2018). Five of his stories have been adapted to film. In 2014 four stories from his book Abandoned in the Dark (Dark Ink, an imprint of AM Ink Publishing, 2012) were made into a feature-length anthology film of the same name. Though he earned his readership by writing reality-based dark fiction, Boyle has gained a reputation for literary stories, essays, articles, aphorisms, reviews, interviews, analyses, travel writing, reportage, and poems, a good number of which have appeared in both print and online magazines as well as in anthologies.
