Alan K Baker was born in Birmingham in 1964. After leaving university in 1991, he endured a series of increasingly unpleasant jobs, culminating in a nine-month stint as a meat-packer in a Sheffield sausage factory, which served to increase his fascination with the macabre and outlandish. Since 1997, he has published a number of non-fiction books on the paranormal and popular history, which have been translated into seven languages.
"The Martian Ambassador" is his first published novel. "Dyatlov Pass", his unpublished science fiction thriller inspired by the unexplained deaths of nine ski-hikers in the Ural Mountains in 1959, has been optioned for film by director Simon Fellows and screenwriter/novelist Andy Briggs.
