My name is Martin Petto. I grew up in the North but I’ve now spent half my life in London. This blog is a platform for me to bang on about whatever takes my fancy.
The way it has turned out, the thing I spend most of my time writing about is speculative fiction. I read a lot of SF and sometimes I even manage to write about what I’ve read. Elsewhere I have been:
- A once prolific reviewer, primarily for Strange Horizons.;
- The reviews editor for Vector, the critical journal of the British Science Fiction Association, between 2010 and 2016;
- A judge for the 2010 and 2011 Arthur C Clarke Awards; and
- A contributor to the third edition of the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, predominantly writing entries on post-1992 cinema.
