Tim C. Taylor lives with his family in an old village in England called Bromham. When he was a young and impressionable lad, between 1977 and 1978, several important things happened to him all at once: 2000AD, Star Wars, Blake's 7, and Dungeons & Dragons. Consequently, he now writes science fiction.Tim's short fiction has been published in a number of magazines, and most recently in Shoes, Ships & Cadavers and Further Conflicts, anthologies that featured classy authors such as Alan Moore, Lauren Beukes, and Dan Abnett. His ambition is that one day, Moore, Beukes, and Abnett will proudly write in their bios that they once shared an anthology with Tim C. Taylor.It wasn't always that way. Before a series of Doctor Who novels inspired him to start writing fiction in 2002, Tim wrote first music and then software. After twenty years in the software industry, Tim took a break in 2011, setting up Greyhart Press, an eBook publisher of science fiction, horror, and fantasy. While most of his time has been spent publishing other authors, Tim found time to complete his first two novels, a series called The Reality War, published February 2012.In the real world, he is husband, Dad, sometime-brewer, and oftentimes-builder of Lego constructs to his son's designs. His favorite beer is Uplift Ale, named in honor of SF author David Brin, and available exclusively from his garage.Find him on the web at or on Twitter @TimCTaylor
