Editor: Pete Sutton
Pete Sutton has a not so secret lair in the wilds of Fishponds, Bristol and dreams up stories, many of which are about magpies. He’s had stuff published, online and in book form, including a short story collection called A Tiding of Magpies (Shortlisted for the British Fantasy Award 2017) and the novel Sick City Syndrome. He wrote all about Fishponds for the Naked Guide to Bristol and has made more money from non-fiction than he has from fiction and wonders if that means the gods of publishing are trying to tell him something. Pete is a member of the North Bristol Writers.
You can find him all over social media or worrying about events he’s organised at the Bristol Festival of Literature, Bristol HorrorCon and BristolCon. On Twitter he’s @suttope and he’s published by Kensington Gore http://www.kensingtongorepublishing.com/pete-sutton/4591911186
Editor: Kimberly Nugent
Kimberly Nugent is a self-admitted geek, of gaming, grammar, and crafting. She lives in Northern California with her two kids, two pets, and engineer husband. Kimberly caught the sci-fi bug at an early age thanks to her grandfather handing her a copy of The Hobbit, and a librarian who insisted she check out Dragonsong. Kimberly has been with Far Horizons as “extra editor” since December and enjoys torturing the authors with writing prompts. You can find her online on Twitter at @BlueTeaEditing.
Art & Production: Ana Marija Meshkova
Ana Marija Meshkova currently lives in her home town in Macedonia. She has been writing in English for six years and has been studying typesetting and graphic design for two years. She writes regularly for Far Horizons magazine, was one of the authors contributing to the Tied in Pink anthology for breast cancer, and is wokring on her first book. She also regularly dabbles in translating from English to Macedonian and reverse.
Proofreading & Production: Valery Riddle
Having written her first poem at 8 and her first short story at 12, Valery Riddle has come a long way from an amateur to a self-taught writer as she was trying to find herself in the one talent that really mattered. Between the understanding that small scribbles on the paper might mean something more than simple everyday words and the hope that she has something to contribute, the writer dared to go deeper into the shadows of human weaknesses and desires to find the unquenched well of subjects. Be it an innocent human error behind some drastic action or frightful hidden motives in everyday life, Valery sets on a journey to put her characters in such circumstances that would reveal it all. Just another face in the crowd, she watches people around her as a silent observer to find new plots to explore, while her true inspiration blooms in the quietness of nature, away from noisy cars and smoky cities, on seashores under the ever-changing sky. To follow her own words from the works that she herself calls “verses-in-prose”:
“People crave bread and circuses, and I crave to see those people. I will let them outrun me to see them better. However close the sunset is, the sun will always remain in the sky and my shade will not disappear. I will not walk off my path to become closer to people. And I know that when I am asked for an explanation I shall not give it”.
