Today's random featured guest:Kim Newman

Kim Newman

Kim Newman was born in London in 1959, and is to be found there yet. He was "a weird kid, became a psycho teenager, and grew up into a maladjusted adult". His words.

His career is as varied as only a true writer's can be, having been involved in the theatre and cabaret, freelance journalism and film criticism, and finally his phenomenally successful work as a writer of fiction, both under his own name and that of Jack Yeovil: thus far he has published 20 novels and short-story collections, plus 7 non-fiction books. He has also edited a few anthologies, and been published in just about every SF/Fantasy/Horror magazine going.

Not surprisingly, he's won six awards for his writing. His most famous series of books, however, is his Anno Dracula cycle. We whole-heartedly recommend them to you.
