P.S. Gifford's Blog - Posts Tagged "richard-matheson"

I suppose this first line should be incredibly interesting to make you read on. Sorry, it wasn't.

If you are still reading, let me introduce myself. My name is Paul Gifford and I write under P.S. Gifford. There is a Paul Gifford who pens religious books and when i first started out things got weird sometimes.

I was born and raised in Birmingham, England but have called California, U.S.A. home since the 1980's. I have a fascination with the short story, both reading and writing them. To date I have had over fifty credits in various zines, both electronic and printed. I also have had three collections published- one aimed for the Young Adult crowd.

I am a memeber of the H.W.A. which has enabled me to mingle with some of my heroes....Including Richard Matheson at the last Stoker bash. I still gush as I recall it. I also had the great pleasure of chatting to John Saul before a book signing he was doing on the same day I was allotted my own signing at the store. Now, as i credit John Saul's first book back in 1977 for sending my life down this crazy road you can imagine the thrill. I was delighted to find him both friendly and encouraging.

Well, that is it for now, time for the first Guinness of the day.

Cheers.

Paul
