About the Author

Trevor Barton was born on the south coast of England to a biker and a supermarket attendant. The conservative small town of his childhood was a place which, by the late 80s, felt to him more like a miniature US State than a British place for stiffened upper lips. The town's locals adored line dancing, his church shot its theology from the hip, fast food appeared-punk was out and baseball-capped rave was in.

Shifting senses of nationhood, unusual theology and some family tragedy-his father became disabled, his mother died when he was sixteen-weren't his only sources of childhood alienation and estrangement. For a few years as a teen he was sent to a military training corps for toughening up. As an attempt-almost certainly-to turn him straight, this failed wonderfully.

He studied at Bath: a place known for its emphasis on skills development during the study of arts subjects-and particularly known for its creative writing expertise. His main submission was a well-received script for a play. His multi-disciplinary MA dissertation (in 1998) explored why our culture takes interest in cyborgs using-among other things-feminist criticism, and the latest in AI philosophy.

His love of technology, words, and creative industry led him to become a managing editor writing a mainstream UK web tech magazine after only his second career move. From there he stepped sideways into web development-something very new at the time-and sent sites live for global names like Nature and OUP. This got him bar-crawling Nashville and sharing sidewalks with alligators in Florida while on business trips to meet scientists.

A member of the SOA, he lives with his husband in Europe.
