Dru Pagliassotti is an author of fantasy literature and the editor of The Harrow online magazine.[1]

Her first published novel was Clockwork Heart, a steampunk fantasy novel about an Icarus-winged heroine, Taya, who stumbles into a murder mystery when she rescues a high caste official of the layered City of Ondinium.[2] The novel, published by Juno Books in April 2008, received excellent reviews from Drew Bittner of SFRevu and Harriet Clausner at Alternative Worlds. Pagliassotti's writing has been compared to the work of China Mieville and D. M. Cornish.[3]

Since 1998 Pagliassotti has been the editor in chief and publisher of the The Harrow and owner of The Harrow Press. The Harrow is a peer reviewed online literary magazine designed to support new writers as they develop their careers. The magazine has published two anthologies of horror fiction.[1][4]

Pagliassotti is also a professor in the communication department of California Lutheran University, where she researches yaoi or "boys' love" fiction (manga, anime, visual novels and dōjinshi) from Japan.[5]

In 2009, Pagliassotti was named one of the Year's Best Fantasy writers, qualifying her story "Bookmarked" to be published in the 21st edition of The Year's Best Fantasy & Horror.
