Based in Devon, UK, Neil Vogler writes high-octane sci-fi thrillers, offbeat contemporary fiction, and toe-curlingly weird short stories. A former freelance newspaper journalist, Neil's writing was initially recognised in 2012 when one of his short stories was featured on the literature development charity Cyprus Well's inaugural podcast for showcasing the best new writing in the South West UK Region. Numerous book releases have followed since then, and Neil's work has shown up in all kinds of places. A lifelong science fiction and fantasy fan, Neil has contributed articles to the likes of SF Signal and Literature Works, and these days writes for TV/movies/book site Garbage-File and its sister music/arts site Albie Media. On both sites he enthuses about under-loved pieces of work in a column called 'Neil Vogler's Underappreciated'. You can find him on Twitter @WroteAThingOnce.
