Brian Evenson is an American academic and writer of both literary fiction and popular fiction, some of the latter being published under B.K. Evenson. From 2003 to 2015, Evenson was Professor of Literary Arts at Brown University, but has accepted a new position to teach at CalArts starting in 2016. His fiction, often described as literary minimalism but also drawing inspiration from horror, detective fiction, science fiction and continental philosophy, makes frequent use of dark humor and often features characters struggling with the limits and consequences of knowledge. He has also written non-fiction, and translated several books by French-language writers into English.
