Random Other Bits:

For writing and editing biblios check out the other pages on the site.

I’ve slushed for Fantasy Magazine (2009 – Lightspeed era), Lightspeed Magazine and the BFS’ Dark Horizons magazine. I’ve also served on the judging panels for the BFS Best Magazine/Periodical Award in 2019 and the BFS Sydney J Bounds Best Newcomer Award in 2010, 2011 & 2012. (And had the great terror… er, pleasure of co-presenting the award at Fcon 2010.)

I’ve con-gofered off and on at Fantasycon since around 1997 where I’m usually found on Registration, have been known to serve on the Fcon committee (2000-2007), and even organised it a couple of times. (2006 & 2007).

Earned a History BA (hons) with the Open University. (Woohoo!)
