Wicked Women Anniversary Interview: Adrian Tchaikovsky

Wicked Women Anniversary Interview: Adrian Tchaikovsky talks to Jenny Barber

Jenny Barber

And today, my lovelies, we’re rolling into the holidays with the author of Wicked Women story ‘This Blessed Union’ – Adrian Tchaikovsky, take it away!

Tell us a little about yourself and what you like to write

Adrian_Tchaikovsky_001I’m that guy who writes about spiders taking over, while rooting for the spiders. There’s more to it as well – my interests include biological sciences, historical combat and gaming of all kinds, but they’re going to put the spider thing on my tombstone. Or you can substitute various things for spiders – insects, aliens, robots, the next wave of human evolution, but I am consistently the champion of the other.

How long have you been writing and how did you get started?

I first started writing (terribly) around age 18 after reading the Dragonlance books and realising that here someone had taken a RPG campaign and turned it into a set of…

Interview with Jan Edwards by Fi McVie

Interview on the Fiona Mcvie site with Jan Edwards



Name: Jan Edwards


Where are you from:

I am from Sussex originally, but spent my teens in South London. Welsh mother, Geordie/Midlander father so I’m a bit of a mongrel roots-wise. Currently living in Staffordshire Moorlands with my husband, Peter Coleborn, three cats and a few elderly chickens.

A little about your self `ie your education Family life etc  

Jan: That is epic in itself. Let me see— I left school at 15 and had many and varied jobs from stable girl to librarian to motorcycle sales via marker gardener, civil servant and book seller. There were other jobs but life is too short to list them all. Spent almost twenty years as a Master Locksmith (first woman in UK to qualify). I am now a reiki master and meditational healer when not writing or editing.
I gained a BA in English lit later in life; gained a…

Andrew Coulthard interviewed for Urban Mythic 2

Andrew Coulthard’s story “Paradise Walk” appears in The Alchemy Press Book of Urban Mythic 2.

Tell us a little about yourself and your writing.

I’ve always been interested in stories and the fantastic, both as a reader and creator. I wrote lots of tales as a kid and teenager. I also wrote and illustrated a dramatized “magazine” for the fantasy wargames club my mates and I ran in our teens. After that, however, I laboured on and off over the years with one over-ambitious epic manuscript after another until I finally gave up. Then a few years ago I began writing again, only this time I focused on short fiction.

I enjoy writing all sorts of things – fantasy, sci-fi, slipstream/weird fiction, absurdist/surrealistic tales, horror and more. Whatever piques my interest or gives me energy for the moment to be honest.
