Ed Rosick

Edward R. Rosick is a writer and physician living in the urban wilds of central Michigan. His diverse works of speculative fiction, from the sublime to surreal, have appeared in numerous award-winning magazines and anthologies, including Pulphouse, Sick Cruising, and The Half That You See.

Dr. Rosick is also an accomplished non-fiction writer, having authored hundreds of articles on nutrition, health, and wellness and the book Optimal Prevention, which details common-sense ways to fight against the 5 most common killer today. When he's not reading, writing, or seeing patients, Dr. Rosick enjoys spending time exercising, doing martial arts, and being outdoors with his family, friends, and hyperactive Labrador Retriever.



March, 2024

The cycles of the seasons continue their slow but inexorable spin here in Michigan. Snow is melting, birds are singing, and trees are budding—all signs that old man winter is finally on his way out.

In terms of writing, work continues on two novels—The Bird House and Waheela. I’ve got a new short story out at Carnage House entitled Her Freaky Skin. It's a nasty tale of two teenage boys who come across a dying woman with a body full of something in the alleyways of Detroit. If you think you can handle the horror, go check it out!


Evil Genius Entertainment

Besides my literary works, I’ve also had the pleasure of working both in front and behind the camera for some very cool film companies. Below, check out a behind-the-scenes look at making the zombie series, Reanimated, by Evil Genius Entertainment. It’s a fun peak at how movie magic, or in this case, zombie magic, can be brought to life even without a mega-million dollar Hollywood budget.

Rosick's repellent characters in "Deep Roots" leap off the page — and the sins of their pasts play out in the most literal and horrifying of ways. I was hanging on until the very end.

Author of The Trajectory of Dreams and editor of Bodies Full of Burning

Edward R. Rosick's novel, Deep Roots, brings body horror to weird new levels. It is genuinely unnerving, with an engrossing narrative that doesn't allow you to sit still without squirming. Rosick is a writer to watch!

Douglas Ford

Author of The Beasts of Vissaria County

Make no mistake, Deep Roots is brutal and unpleasant. It'll make you squirm, it will haunt your nightmares and make your skin crawl. But at the same time, there's humanity here, rising up against implacable odds. A tale of disenfranchisemnent and survival in the face of horrible adversity.

Tim Curran

Prolific author of multiple horror classics including Skull Moon, Biohazard, and Nightcrawlers

Ed Rosick seems intent upon becoming a peculiarly 21st Century American-Heartland version of the great British horror-meisters of the 20th Century -- with the added distinction of some of the creepiest physiological twists I've encountered.

Felice Picano

Award-winning & best-selling author of Onyx, The Book of Lies, and Pursuit: A Victorian Entertainment

This book is a wild rollercoaster ride and following Kevin is like being in a car with a drunk driver. His out-of-control temper and lack of common sense make for a character that the reader won’t feel sorry for but will make one wonder what will happen to Kevin. Enjoyable, yet creepy and weird, Deep Roots is perfect for fans of Stephen King and the likes.
