Author AJ Kirby

A. J. Kirby is the award-winning published author of three novels and over forty short stories. He is a sports writer for the Professional Footballer's Association in the UK and a reviewer for The New York Journal of Books and The Short Review.

Andy's work has been described as `vivid and intense', `deeply disturbing', and `intriguing'. He writes about the darker side of the street; that place that people hurry past without quite knowing why. He revels in creating unease in the reader. After entering his world, `you may want to run up and down stairs just to calm down' (as one reviewer put it).

Otherwise he is an avid reader.  He enjoys travel, film and theatre, and he would love to be better at chess. He'd also like to learn about paleontology and dreams of a perfect world when he no longer has to work at a day-job.

"I have always loved horror stories, having grown up with Jason Voorhees and his slasher friends, and I love writing them even more.

Author Ian McKinley

Ian is a Scot living in Switzerland, working in the rather esoteric field of radioactive waste management. He assesses the safety of disposal sites a million years in the future and analyses how the Oklo reactors operated two billion years ago – which is often hard to distinguish from science fiction.

Ian’s experience ensures sound backdrops to his hard science fiction. Adult action thrillers showcase the evolution of society in the face of major technological advances and a degrading natural environment. All extrapolations over the next century are credible, maybe frighteningly so, given their dystopian nature.

Previously published novels offer offbeat takes on the impact of the collapse of a future, even more ubiquitous, Internet and the emergence of artificial intelligence.

Pete moved to Hull, a City port, eighteen years ago and now lives with his adorable partner, Vicky. 

Author Siôn James

Out the dying embers of a power-pop musical career that found Siôn James local celebratory status as part of the best unsigned band to have hailed from the village in which he hails, Siôn took to the written word rather than the lyrical to tell of tales less than ordinary and akin to American Pie meets Bridget Jones. Now a Husband and Father of two, Siôn regales with happenings of floundering nostalgia by way of offering an apology through humour to those who just happened to be in the wrong place, at the wrong time with the wrong person – that being Siôn himself.
