My non-academic writing falls within the broad genre of speculative fiction, encompassing science fiction, fantasy (high and low), horror, dystopia, psychological thrillers, etc. I find the notion of 'genre' philosophically problematic (though that is a matter for my academic writing not my non-academic!) and thus do not bother to try to narrow things down further than simply "speculative".

I am also the founder and main editor of, a website for short reviews of short science fiction & fantasy stories, and a first reader for Cosmic Roots and Eldritch Shores.

Below is a list of my published and forthcoming short stories. I am currently working on a novel, The Mapping of Tula Mors, and a novella, Base 8.
