Paul S. Huggins hails from the United Kingdom within the history and witchcraft rich county of Suffolk. He resides there with his Wife, two daughters and a familiar called ‘George’. His introduction to the genre was being scared to death at an early age by a movie called ‘Dawn of the Dead’. It changed his whole aspect on the apocalypse, and now thinks when not if! With numerous short stories published and three self-published books, Paul would say horror is in his blood, but thankfully, he is still living.
I was born in Madrid, where I lived until the age of 18. Then I decided to move to France for a year, to study French and gather my thoughts about what I wanted to do with my life. Four years later I graduated in European Studies and Russian Language at the University of Manchester. Currently I work as a freelance translator and I am saving money to move to Taiwan and learn Chinese . The first story I got published was by Almond Press in the previous ebook collection, since then I have won the Guardian’s short story competition, Protest! Already available in Amazon, and I have been honoured with a second publication with Almond Press…so I guess that makes three out of three. I have also recently created a blog of short stories, called “Digital Pulp” (La Pulpa Digital), however, it is in Spanish and pretty much empty so far.

Andrew is a small town author, surrounded by cornfields on all sides in a quaint little mid-western bore. His style is eclectic and to the point, with some polished flowery imagery for flavoring. His ideas are sharp and grisly and mostly deal with the fringes of reality, the things you hear on dark stormy nights, the things with no names. If the world of Literature was a full-bodied woman, his writing would be the hosiery, tight and fitting.
