About the Author
Until recently, Vaughan Stanger worked as a research manager at a British engineering company. From 1997 to 2011, he wrote science fiction and fantasy stories in his spare time, effectively setting himself homework. The results of this head-scratching were published in Nature Futures, Interzone, Postscripts, Daily Science Fiction and Music for Another World, to name but a few. Translations of his stories have appeared in Polish and Hebrew.In January 2012 Vaughan became a full-time writer. Currently he's busy writing a hard SF novel (hard in both meanings of the word). The head-scratching has got worse if anything. There are also some new stories in the works, plus further e-book compilations of his previously published stories to come.
