Here’s where you can find his work:

Eidolon Avenue: The First Feast

“Lyrical, poetic, and devastating, Jonathan Winn’s Eidolon Avenue is everything good horror should be. At times, I couldn’t help feeling as if I was reading early Barker, and I can’t think of a higher compliment than that. Pay attention folks, Winn does as his name suggests, and this is a killer collection of nightmares.” – Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Turtle Boy, Kin, and Sour Candy

“Jonathan Winn’s writing is solid and assured, and EIDOLON AVENUE: THE FIRST FEAST is a big, sweeping, fantastical and exotic work that is as engrossing and thrilling as it is disturbing and horrifying. Winn is definitely an author to watch.” – Greg F. Gifune, author The Bleeding Season

The Realtor: an Eidolon Avenue Short Story

“For those of you familiar with Eidolon Avenue it is another glimpse at the darkness residing within. For those of you not familiar, The Realtor is an addicting first taste of a much larger world.” -Zakk, The Eyes of Madness

Martuk … the Holy

“a very dark and fantastical tale where angels and demons blend together; where violence and sexuality are entwined and madness and clarity are confused” – Caleb Blake, Papyrus Independent Author Reviews

Martuk … the Holy: Proseuche

“deep, dense, intelligent, complex … the evil scenes in particular are amazing … as breathtaking as they are creepy” — Horror Fiction Reviews

The Tall Priest

“…the next gorgeous new piece in the Martuk mythos. This world is the perfect amalgam of beauty and pain, magic and tragedy. Immediately engrossing and perpetually heartbreaking…” – Amazon Review
