Today's random featured guest:Simon Clark

Simon Clark

Simon Clark is the author of such highly regarded horror novels as Nailed By The Heart, Blood Crazy, Darker, Vampyrrhic and The Fall, and the short story collections Blood & Grit and Salt Snake & Other Bloody Cuts. He has also written prose material for that those well-known Irish songsters, U2. His most recent book is The Night Of The Triffids, which is the officially authorised sequel to John Wyndham's classic SF novel, The Day Of The Triffids. Of this book he says: "...now if you could go back in time and say to the starry eyed teenaged Simon Clark, 'Did you know that in 2001 your book that continues the Day Of The Triffids story will be published?\' I'd have probably snorted in disbelief (while secretly hoping it was true!).

We're delighted to welcome him back to Octocon.
