About Me

 

G’day. 20161215_163851 - Copy - Copy

My name is Jeremy Szal. I was born in 1995 in the outback of Australia and was raised by wild dingos. But I’ve managed to civilize myself and now write science-fiction with the occasional fantasy or horror.

My work has appeared or is forthcoming in Nature, Tor.com, Abyss & Apex, Tales to Terrify, Grimdark Magazine, Lightspeed, Strange Horizons, The Drabblecast and many anthologies. My work has been adapted into audio and translated into Polish, Arabic and Chinese. I have a BA in Film Studies and Creative Writing from the University of New South Wales.

I’m the fiction editor for Hugo-winning podcast StarShipSofa, where I’ve worked with and served as audio producer for George R. R. Martin, William Gibson, Christopher Priest, Joe R. Lansdale, Robin Hobb, Jack Campbell, Kim Stanley Robinson, Joe Abercrombie, and hundreds of other talented authors and narrators. Episodes that I’ve worked on can be found here.

My favourite authors ainclude Joe Abercrombie, Iain M. Banks, Paolo Bacigalupi, George R. R. Martin, Pierce Brown, Stephen King, and Michael Grant. Favourite film directors include Bong jo Hoon, Quentin Tarantino, Edgar Wright, Sion Sono, Park Chan-Wook, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, and Martin Scorsese.

You can find me on Facebook and Twitter, on Goodreads and Amazon and IMDB. . You can also buy me a coffee here.

    Hey Jeremy
    I noticed that your blog is a word press blog the same as mine. What is different however is the fact that you actually have viewers. How is this so? I am trying to get people to read my blog but so far all I got were four readers. I’m actually writing my blog as the fictional character Merrick Mc Cleud a Shaman and exorcist for hire. I wrote a book that talks all about him. I see your a fellow writer with multiple books under your belt along with other things. I would like to chat with you more if possible.

    I read your suicide squad review. It was interesting

      Hi mate,
      Can’t say. Probably because I’m “big” in other areas – I don’t just blog here, I’ve got stories and articles published in places like Nature, which links up and directs people here, which they follow me. At least that’s what I’m amusing happens.

      And thanks for the compliment…however I don’t have any novels published, only the aforementioned short fiction and articles. For what it’s worth: if you want to write, then write and send your stuff out there. That’s what I did and I’m here today.

      Have a good one,
      Jeremy
