Steve Simpson

Steve Simpson

Steve lives in Sydney, Australia mostly. He took up writing when the neighbors complained about the bagpipes, and his stories have appeared in various magazines and anthologies. His hobbies include experiments with time travel and negative light, and research on epileptic seizure detection.

Steve’s favorite author is the startlingly original China Mieville, and every day he reads one of Peter Porter’s magical poems aloud, usually in the bus so that no-one wants to sit next to him. The planet he’d like to live on is Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom, and his preferred waterfowl is the wood duck. He occasionally puts himself into his stories, and he’s currently working on a horror trilogy with working title “Steve the Wood Duck.”

Steve’s writing technique is to drink coffee until his hands are shaking, write a story, rewrite it, edit it, and finally print out the manuscript and wrap the fish bones in it. Then more coffee. When he isn’t writing he can be found in his basement laboratory, drinking coffee and wondering what caused the explosion. Despite minor setbacks, in the near future he hopes to perfect micro-galactic confinement.
