About the Author

Wayne Goodchild
Wayne Goodchild

Wayne Goodchild isn't a pseudonym, which also isn't one of those 'deny something that's actually true' scenarios. He's had over thirty stories published up to now, including this book you hold in your hands. Most were in invite-only anthologies, alongside other horror and science fiction writers he still can't believe he got to share page space with.

Wayne Goodchild is originally from Scunthorpe, which is the only town in the whole of England that's twinned with its own rubbish dump. He spent time living in Australia, the US, and Colombia, and currently lives in Slovenia with his wife and their two boys. He loves beans on toast and quality balcony time with a good gin and tonic.
