K Cartlidge

SciFi/Fantasy Author and Web/Software Developer


I mainly discuss creative writing and software development, with the occasional review thrown in. My main influences are Noir (for example Raymond Chandler), Space Opera (such as Eric Brown or Iain M Banks), Sword and Sorcery (e.g. Conan, Black Company), Epic or High Fantasy (David Gemmell, Julian May) and Military SciFi (Sven, Gaunt, WH40K).

I’ve been maintaining this site in various forms for a few years (posts are infrequent).

My first own-brand full-length novel is nearing completion. Those who’ve been with me for a while will note that many posts have gone. They were simply no longer relevant.
