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.

These books passed me by when they were first released. When I saw them in Hastings' new library, I finally decided to read them and see what all the fuss was about. Well... I enjoyed them. They're easy to read (I finished all seven in a month) and I ...more

I've not seen the TV series; I picked this up as I've read a few of Atwood's other books and it seemed a bit remiss not to have read this one. So... very disturbing, scarily plausible, yet I couldn't help thinking something was missing. Would society ...more

Having read (and loved) Douglas Adams' books, I was wary of reading this one, but in the end relented and gave it a go. I almost gave up halfway through. Zaphod, though one of my favourites, is I think far too shallow a character to take the lead. Th ...more
