Welcome to My Nightmare

Hi. I’m Matthew Graybosch from Sayville, NY. I write literary power metal: optimistic and romantic science fantasy inspired by heavy metal, progressive rock, progressive metal, symphonic metal, and power metal. I’m also a self-taught software developer who dabbles in Unix systems at home. I currently work for Deloitte Consulting, but do not represent them or speak for them.

If you like any of the following bands, you’ll probably enjoy my Starbreaker novels and stories:

  • Judas Priest
  • Queensrÿche
  • Therion
  • Within Temptation
  • Iron Maiden
  • the Blue Öyster Cult

My Latest Work

You should check out Silent Clarion, my latest Starbreaker novel. Curiosity may have killed the catgirl, but swashbuckling soprano Naomi Bradleigh isn’t the sort to give up without a fight. With wits as sharp as her claws and sword, this young Adversary is out to find out why people are disappearing in the town of Clarion.

Originally released as a web serial, Silent Clarion is currently a Kindle serial for Kindle Universe subscribers, and will be released in 2016 as a complete novel…

“Combining full-on metal, metaphysical AI’s, and survival horror, Graybosch creates science-fiction that is both emotionally and intellectually satisfying.”

David Higgins on a preview of the complete novel

The whole story isn’t out yet, but at least one person is eager for more…

“All I can say is RATZ! I’m hooked on a serial. I hate when that happens. Nothing to do but by the next segment of Silent Clarion.”
