A coffee-guzzling journalist turned novelist, Mark Cantrell lives and works by the weave of his words.

He is the author of two novels (both published by Inspired Quill), a host of short stories, and plenty of social commentary. Over the years, his writings have appeared in a number of small press 'zines, websites, and multi-author collections.

His fictional work tends to fall into the realms of science fiction and fantasy, with a little macabre horror thrown in for good measure, but he's not averse to touching upon social and political themes too.

Born and bred in Bradford, Mark now lives in Stoke-on-Trent, though he remains proud of his Yorkshire heritage.

Don’t be blue, it’s just the light Images taken from the International Space Station have helped terrestrial researchers assess the impact of street lighting on human health – and they reckon it’s increasing our risk of breast and prostate cancer By Mark Cantrell IT might sound like a case for the tinfoil hat, but researchers […]

Deadly Night Shade (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: "She was the one who was afraid of the dark, that's why the other vamps in her gang laughingly called her Shade, but now the joke's on them, and she's the one still breathing. When a night on the town turns deadly, when all her friends are slain, Shade must stalk the man who slaughtered them or join them in the grave. But he's no ordinary vampire slayer... and Shade is no ordinary vampire. Only one of them is getting out of this alive..."

“Eric, you need to look at the whole picture," the PM said. "You look at the jobless as a huge pile of scrap and you're looking for what can be recycled. That's good. That's your job. But what you don't realise is that this pile of scrap itself serves a purpose. I need my zeros, Eric. They put fear in people; fear of crime and terrorism. They are a stark reminder to the stakeholders that what they despise today, they may end up joining tomorrow. It keeps them obedient. Remember that!”
Mark Cantrell, Citizen Zero

“Beyond the queues, the vacancy screens listed jobs in a multitude of languages. Invariably, they were low-paid and short-term dead-ends. Nearby, people in headphones sat at a bank of machines: the blind and the illiterate force-fed with ‘opportunities’ by soothing machine voices. On the far wall, in large print, a poster declared: BEGGARS CANNOT BE CHOOSERS.”
Mark Cantrell

“In AR, a falling tree makes no sound unless there is a witness to behold the event. Otherwise, it is only a changing pattern in a complex data-stream.”
