DANIEL SOULE – Chief Reviewer

dan-soule-author-profile-pic

Dan was once a university lecturer, and even wrote a PhD about the language of nationalism in Scottish politics. He also co-wrote a book about it. But the sentences proved too long and the words too obscure. Northern Ireland is where he now lives. But Dan was born in England and raised in Byron’s home town, which the bard hated but Dan does not. They named every other road after Byron. As yet no roads are named after Dan but several children are. Dan tries to write the kind of stories he wants to read, which means a mix of literary fiction, horror and fantasy, with an occasional pinch of science fiction. Dan’s stories have featured in the Incubator, Storgy, the Dime Show Review, Short Tale 100, Phantaxis and the horror magazine Devolution Z.

JESSICA GREGORY – Reviewer

jess

Jessica is a London based writer and editor. By day she is a Librarian and consequently one of an increasingly endangered species, by night she attempts some constructive (and some not so constructive), creative and critical scribblings. She was Reviews Editor with Inky Needles before its sad demise (not so constructive) and her short stories have been published with The UnstituiteWords With Jam and Storgy (more constructive). She writes reviews of literature with Sabotage Reviews and occasionally attempts her own rambling theoretical and cultural articles on her own platform, dengeneratesblog. She studied Cultural and Critical Theory at Brighton University (whatever that means) and she is forever getting lost, but is never without a book, or two.

BARBARA FIESCHI-JONES – Reviewer

image1
Barbara’s love of literature started in the 90s, when, finally the age required to access the adult section of the library, she stumbled upon Dracula, Rebecca, Dangerous Liaisons and many more, sealing Her fate as an aspiring writer. She has 9 best sellers on the go, one which is an entire 4 pages long, and the other 8, undecipherable scribbles on scattered post-it notes. Being the worst procrastinator is one of her biggest regrets in life, coming only second to the fact that no, she’s not the frontman of 1970s rock band. To get over it, she cracks open a cold beer and a good book.
Barbara lives in Surrey with her husband and two children. She has some reviews and 3 stories published on STORGY.
