10/2018 – Steven H. Wilson and I are excited to announce a successful end to our Kickstarter campaign. In November, we will release Steve’s vampire novella FREEDOM’S BLOOD combined with my paranormal mystery, LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTERS in the format of the classic ACE doubles (read one story, flip the book over and read the other). A launch party is being arranged at the Philadelphia SF Convention (Philcon) for Saturday, November 17. More updates to come!
09/2018 – My short story, “Memory Lane Ain’t What It Used To Be,” was accepted by the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group for their upcoming anthology, Rewriting the Past, slated for release in March 2019.

06/2018 – Excited to reveal Mike Riehl’s incredible cover art for Meanwhile in the Middle of Eternity, the third volume in the Middle of Eternity speculative fiction series that I created and edited for Firebringer Press. The book is due out next summer.
WHO THE HECK IS THIS GUY?
A Pennsylvania resident, Phil Giunta graduated from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia with a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems back in the days when data was saved by chiseling it into stone. Phil continues to work in the IT industry, although he would love nothing more than to escape corporate America and open his own bait and tackle shop, or explore outer space in a starship, which might allow him to open a bait and tackle shop on another planet. At least he has a plan, but we digress…
Phil’s first novel, a paranormal mystery called Testing the Prisoner, debuted in 2010 from Firebringer Press. His second novel in the same genre, By Your Side, was released in 2013. Phil has also narrated the audio versions of both novels, available for free at Scribl.com. Continuing the adventures of psychic-medium Miranda Lorensen, Phil’s paranormal mystery novella, Like Mother, Like Daughters, will be available in 2018 in paperback, ebook, and audio.
Phil’s short stories appear in such anthologies as Beach Nights from Cat and Mouse Press, the ReDeus mythology series from Crazy 8 Press, and the Middle of Eternity speculative fiction series, which he created and edited for Firebringer Press. The third volume, Meanwhile in the Middle of Eternity is currently under way. His paranormal mystery novella, Like Mother, Like Daughters is slated for release in 2018.
As a member of the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group (GLVWG), Phil has also penned stories and essays for Write Here, Write Now and The Write Connections, two of the group’s annual anthologies. He also served as chairman of the 2015 Write Stuff writers conference in Bethlehem, PA.
