Paul is the author of the novel The Philanthropist's Danse and The Mercy Contracts.

Paul grew up in the city of Bath in England, a place that everyone should see before they die.

Paul began his work life as a bookseller with WHSmith in the UK before they convinced him to sell music instead. He sold music and movies on both sides of the Atlantic over the next decade and a half, shifting with the times and technology from vinyl to CD and from VHS to DVD. In 2000, the emergence of Napster and file sharing convinced him the music business was over for retail and he bailed out.

In 2002 he earned an MBA from the University of Alberta, joined a small medical device manufacturer based in Edmonton and traveled to China and all over North America.

Paul Wornham and 35 other people liked Peter Spenser's review of I, Zombie:
I, Zombie by Hugh Howey

There are conventions that are common to each type of monster story: vampires suck blood, werewolves grow hair, and zombies are mindless, out-of-control creatures whose only thoughts—if they can be said to have any at all—are to " Read more of this review »
