Today's random featured guest:Eugene Byrne

Eugene Byrne

Beneath a naturally modest exterior, Eugene Byrne is a man in turmoil. This may be due to having been born in Waterford, but brought up in Somerset. More likely it is due to his new book Things Unborn having been published in April 2001 by Earthlight. It's a parallel universe fantasy about dead people coming back to life, and includes as a minor character a guest from Octocon 1999 who won a place in the book in a raffle. Next time, it could be you! In an exclusive interview, Eugene told me "I'm currently working on a non-SF/fantasy novel (whatever one calls that), which is partly set in Dun Laoghaire", wey-hey!

Besides these, he has written or co-written (with Kim Newman) several other books. We recommend his website, if only for the information on Sprouts.
