Jonathan Laidlow grew up in the North West of England, near the Sellafield Nuclear Power plant, which regularly leaked. He has one good leg, one good eye, and one good ear … His recent publications include "Obtrusion Rate" at Liminal Stories, "Inundated" at Far Fetched Fables, and "Hyrmnal" at Daily Science Fiction. He lives in Birmingham, UK, and runs the Ultan's Library website about Gene Wolfe, available here. He tweets @burtkenobi and blogs occasionally at jonlaidlow.com.
