Dan McNeil is a UK-based writer producing short fiction, reviews and art. His first story was translated and published in a German science fiction magazine; it was thereafter republished three times in English.
More stories and reviews followed, appearing in a variety of print and online publications, including Antipodean SF, Bewildering Stories, Fantastic Metropolis, Ink Magazine, Laura Hird’s Showcase, Mad Hatter’s Review, Outsider Ink, Redsine, Sein und Werden, The Short Review and Word Riot.
Resolutely ignoring genre pigeonholing, McNeil’s fiction melds surrealism, quantum physics, existentialism, science fiction, satire, cosmic horror and madness. The observant reader may also detect subtle notes of deadpan humour. Occasionally, the humour turns pitch black.
A selection of McNeil’s previously published work appears on this website. A full bibliography can be found here.
In so-called reality (that is to say, in the unreal world outside of his head), Dan McNeil messes around with trees.
