Greetings, and Welcome.
Please allow me to introduce myself. Iím Stephen Dedman. Iím a writer.
At present, Iím also a bookseller, book reviewer, tutor, and student. Iíve previously been an actor, a manuscript assessor, an academic and legal WPO, an editorial assistant for Australian Physicist magazine, an experimental subject, and a used dinosaur parts salesman. Iím also fiction editor of Borderlands magazine, co-editor of the ConSensual anthologies, a former associate editor of Eidolon, and a member of the Horror Writersí Associationís Bram Stoker Awards Oversight Committee and the Katharine Susannah Pritchardís Board of Literary Advisors. And Iíve previously served on the committee of the Festival of Perth Writersí Festival and innumerable science fiction conventions (well, six, I think, but it feels like a lot more).
Primarily, though, Iím a writer: author of four novels, a non-fiction book and more than 100 short stories, plus reviews, role-playing games, stageplays, essays and editorials. Most of the fiction Iíve written has been speculative, fantastic, or just plain weird, but Iíve also written thrillers, erotica, and westerns. Sometimes all at the same time.
