BRADFORD MIDDLETON lives in Brighton on England’s south coast after being born and coming of age in south-east London from 1971. He began writing short stories and poems when he moved here in 2007 because he had an awful lot of spare time. His stories deal with the darker characters in life, the drug fiend, the drunk, the mad-man, the punk weirdo and even the occasional criminal. His debut novel DIVE has just been published by NEW PULP PRESS but if you want a quick introduction to the writing his deranged mind comes up with you could do worse than go read some of his stories at these online places, OVER MY DEAD BODY: THE INTERNATIONAL MURDER-MYSTERY MAGAZINE; NEAR TO THE KNUCKLE, WORK LITERARY MAG; HORROR SLEAZE TRASH; DOWN IN THE DIRT and ...more

Oscar Wilde
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

Chuck Palahniuk, Diary

Jack Kerouac
“[...]the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Chuck Palahniuk
