I am the author of novels including Shackleton’s Man Goes South (Science Museum), Foxy-T (Faber and Faber) and Charlieunclenorfolktango (Codex), the non-fiction work Another Fool in the Balkans (Cadogan), and numerous short stories. I chair the board of London’s award-winning arts radio station Resonance 104.4fm.
Other recent books are Missorts Volume II (Situations), a novella that is published alongside my new permanent soundwork for Bristol, and Dicky Star and the garden rule (Forma), a novella commissioned alongside a series of works by the artists Jane and Louise Wilson to reflect upon the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster.
I have edited and co-edited the short story collections Britpulp (Sceptre) and — with Matt Thorne and Borivoj Radaković — Croatian Nights (Serpent’s Tail). I have been writer in residence at the Science Museum, Leverhulme Trust writer in residence at the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies, and creative entrepreneur in residence at King’s College London.
In case you were wondering about the name of my website, Piece of Paper Press is an artists’ book project that I started in 1994 as a lo-tech, sustainable imprint that could be used to occasionally publish new writings and visual or graphic works by artists and writers and distribute them free. Since 1994 I’ve collaborated with and published works by artists and writers including Joanna Walsh, Michael Moorcock, Liliane Lijn, Pavel Büchler, Peter Bunting, Barbara Campbell, Tim Etchells, Bruce Gilchrist, Halford+Beard, Elizabeth Magill, Penny McCarthy, James Pyman, Borivoj Radaković, Gordana Stanišić, Suzanne Treister, Alison Turnbull and others.
