Michael Moynihan

Michael Moynihan was born in 1969 in New England and has lived in Belgium, Germany, Austria, and Sweden. As an author, editor, translator, musician, and publisher, all of his work deals with the netherworlds where culture, religion, and art meet. His non-fiction book Lords of Chaos, co-written with Norwegian author Didrik Søderlind, won a Firecracker Independent Book Award in 2003. It has since been translated into nine languages (not counting several unauthorized foreign bootleg editions). Most recently he has collaborated on two volumes relating to the unsung pioneer of grotesque and occult imagery in photography, William Mortensen (1897–1965): as co-editor with Larry Lytle of American Grotesque: The Life and Art of William Mortensen and as author of the essay “Infernal Impact: The Command to Look as a Formula for Satanic Success” included in the new edition of William Mortensen's The Command to Look: A Master Photographer’s Method for Controlling the Human Gaze. His work as a translator includes an annotated edition of Die religiose Welt der Germanen: Ritual, Magie, Kult, Mythus by Hans-Peter Hasenfratz, Ph.D., which has been published in English as Barbarian Rites: The Spiritual World of the Vikings and the Germanic Tribes (Inner Traditions, 2011). With his wife Annabel Lee he runs a small independent publishing venture, Dominion Press, which has produced works by Stephen Flowers, Hans Bellmer, John Michell, and Joscelyn Godwin in limited hardcover editions (
