Sydney, New South Wales

I'm a speculative fiction writer, magazine editor and publisher, and reviewer born in Scotland and now living in Wollongong NSW.

My short fiction has appeared in Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, Aurealis Magazine, Oceans of the Mind and the Agog! Press anthology Agog! Fantastic Fiction.

I'm probably best known for being editor of Aurealis - Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy Magazine from 2001 to 2004 and publisher with multi-award winning Australian independent press coeur de lion publishing from 2006 onwards. I also hosted 30 episodes of the Terra Incognita Speculative Fiction (TISF) Podcast from 2008 to 2011.

My book reviews have appeared in Aurealis Magazine, on the TISF Podcast and more recently on the Newtown Review of Books website.

I edit and produce the free and DRM-free Dimension6 speculative fiction electronic magazine three times a year. I'm also a partner in ebookedit, offering a range of flexible editing and file conversion options to indie authors.

My long fiction includes Horizon, a deep space exploration political and ecological thriller/ murder mystery, which was published by Voyager Impulse in November 2014, and the three book Lenticular series, a galaxy-spanning space opera of species slaughter, subjugation and treachery, which is currently in development.

"Refreshingly plausible, politically savvy, and full of surprises, HORIZON takes you on a harrowing thrill-ride through the depths of space and the darkness of the human heart." - Sean Williams, New York Times bestselling author of the Astropolis and Twinmaker series. Thirty-four light years from Earth, the explorer ship Magellan is nearing its objective - the Iota Persei system. But when ship commander Cait Dyson wakes from deepsleep, she finds her co-pilot dead and the ship's AI unresponsive. Cait works with the rest of her multinational crew to regain control of the ship, until they learn that Earth is facing total environmental collapse and their mission must change if humanity is to survive. As tensions rise and personal and political agendas play out in the ship's cramped confines, the crew finally reach the planet Horizon, where everything they know will be challenged. 'Crackling science fiction with gorgeous trans-human and cybernetic trimmings. Keith Stevenson's debut novel soars.' - Marianne De Pierres, award-winning authors of the Parrish Plessis, Sentients of Orion and Peacemaker series.
