Steph Bennion is a writer and musician, born and bred in the Black Country but now living in Hastings, England. Her science-fiction stories are written as a reaction to the dearth of alternative heroes amidst bookshelves swamped by tales of the supernatural. For every aspiring vampire or wizard, the world needs an astrophysicist, an engineer, or at the very least someone who can make the trains run on time.

Steph's self-publishing imprint WyrdStar has recently started to publish works by other authors, the first being speculative fiction anthologies WYRD WORLDS and WYRD WORLDS II.

This is a delightfully strange book that mixes environmental angst with scientists and witches, one quite unlike anything I've read in a while. I guess they raise writers differently in San Francisco.

I liked this a lot - I wish there was more (it's very short), though it could do use an editor's touch. An entertaining slice-of-life about a transgender woman artist and her dalliances with the local police. It reminded me a lot of Maupin's 'Tales o ...more

I really liked this. I've read later 'Culture' books so it was interesting to read this tale of an anti-hero and his motley crew on the wrong side of the conflict. The world-building, as always, is epic in every way imaginable.
