James McCormick

Manchester, United Kingdom


Home page:

I'm a college lecturer from England and a fan of all types of speculative fiction, most notably science fiction, horror & sword and sorcery fantasy. Where possible I try to blend these elements together in my own writing.

H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard and Edgar Rice Burroughs were my first writing inspirations and more recently Frank Herbert and Clive Barker whose works I never grow tired of re-reading.

I live in the rainy city of Manchester with my wife and two young daughters, the elder of which is something of a budding writer herself.
