Described as ‘among the most important writers of contemporary British horror’ by Ramsey Campbell, Simon Bestwick is the author of the novels Tide Of Souls, The Faceless, the serial novel Black Mountain, and the story collections A Hazy Shade Of Winter, Pictures of the Dark, Let’s Drink To The Dead and The Condemned. His short fiction has appeared in Black Static and a host of anthologies including End of the Line and Game Over, and has been reprinted in The Best Horror of the Year. Having spent most of his life in Manchester, he now lives on the Wirral with a long-suffering girlfriend. This is taking some getting used to, but he’s starting to enjoy it. When not writing, he goes for walks, watches movies, listens to music and does all he can to avoid having to get a proper job again. All contributions towards this worthy cause will be gratefully received.
