Dylan Perry was born in the 1970's in Bridgend, South Wales, before moving to the coast. That's the original South Wales, UK, not New South Wales, Australia. He had an idyllic childhood of solo imaginary adventures, making dens and running through woods. It was idyllic mostly because he was largely unaware and disassociated from everything else. He loved his primary school Welsh lessons, where they read Welsh fairy stories. He was not so happy with his secondary school Welsh lessons where they actually expected him to learn Welsh. He loved to read Grimm's fairy tales over and over. He never quite got Hans Christian Anderson's tales, they lacked the darkness of Grimm's and the traditional Welsh tales. Dylan was naturally drawn to the science ...more

Even if it is barely readable nonsense there are two things you can guarantee. First, it is better quality than George Bush Junior could manage when he was running the free world (note to Americans - everyone else just smiled or acknowledged the sarcasm). Secondly, you can beat even random words on a page into submission to give you a start of an idea or at least a direction. Blank pages stare back into you, stealing your soul. Or not.(less)

No, it's more about getting ideas together, creating worlds, inhabitants and stories. It's like playtime for adults.(less)

“Ready?" Aeron called over.
Michael span to see him giving a thumbs up to the booth. His eye was drawn down to the huge war hammer hanging from his other hand.
"How about we start with a chase? Try to touch the far wall and get back here before I cripple you." He smiled as if he'd said 'tag you', not 'cripple you'.”

“Don't worry about Sian," Louisa said, "things will get better."
"What, she'll stop hitting me?"
"No, but you'll stop bruising so easily.”

“I don't understand humans." Caradoc shook his head. "It takes their brightest minds decades to plan an unmanned voyage to the nearest planet, which can take a year to travel each way. Yet they expect there to be aliens travelling distances it takes light decades to reach us, just for a weekend of bum fun with a total stranger without asking their permission, before dropping them off where they found them. They're just dying to believe the weirdest, least plausible things possible.”

“At twenty years old, Michael had vague plans to make changes in his life, but turning blue whilst stood in a walk-in bath in an old people's home wasn't one of them. Usually boys of his age might consider changes along the lines of smoking less grass at home, at college or at work, to be a good idea. Or maybe spending less time on that solitary pursuit common to men of his age across the globe. Enjoyable though he found it, he was going to cut back on the procrastination, but that was going to have to wait.”

“It was one of those decisions that shouldn't have been so easy to get so wrong. Go on your own or take the half wasted waif. She was wearing denim hotpants with a pink vest top, and was hanging off his arm, more for stability than closeness, so he propped her up against the wall next to the counter and reached inside his coat pocket for his badge. It was definitely his badge, he clearly remembered stealing it two years before whilst in California.”

“Staying relaxed was helping him cope with the drug induced juddering vision that could be best described as being like a Hitchcockian visual effect operated by a hyperactive squirrel that shook the whole universe closer and farther away. If you went with it, it was quite pleasant, as long as you didn't introduce any lateral movement like turning your head or the car. This caused the universe to try and slide away from underneath you. The other side effect was the constant feeling you ought to try to twist your head off, in a good way.”

“The silent horror of Archie's ordeal had been temporarily replaced by the howling, agonising pain of the blood refusing to drain from his penis, the end of which was a deep purple verging on black where Officer Griff had tested how hard it was by using the back of his hand to give it a solid twang.”
