  • The Howl, a short story I’ve written in collaboration with Ian R MacLeod, has been accepted for inclusion in Solaris Rising 3. SR3 is scheduled for publication in September 2014, with a preview at Loncon 3, and a launch event at Foyles in London on August 13th.

  • Ahead of Loncon 3 I’ll be at the Satellite 4 Eastercon in Glasgow, where I’ll be on a panel about agents, currently scheduled for 3pm on Saturday afternoon.

Martin who?
I’m a British author, with three novels, numerous short stories and other items published to date. My most recent contributions were a story to the Philip K Dick Award-shortlisted Solaris Rising 2, and an interview on the DVD accompanying the reissue of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ album, Abattoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus. See the bibliography for more.

I grew up in Tamworth, an average market town in the English county of Staffordshire – home to Sir Robert Peel, founder of the police force, and a castle that was once home to the King of Mercia. I’m a chocolate labrador walker. A chocolate consumer. A frustrated cyclist (it’s the hills, y’see). Former guitarist with Emma Gibbs Loves Badges, The Lip Servants and Pony Chair Black. Some say I can look a bit miserable, but that’s just my face; inside I am all butterflies and chirruping birdies.

If you feel the urge you can always tweet me. Thanks for stopping by!
