Hi there! Welcome to the website of Saxon Bullock, author, journalist and freelance proofreader.
I’ve been a freelance journalist since 2000, primarily working for SFX magazine, but I’ve appeared in Hotdog, Starburst, Total Film, Film4.Com and a selection of other outlets. I was also one of the contributors to the recent reference book The Sci-Fi Chronicles.
I’ve been a freelance proofreader since 2008, and have worked on a wide selection of novels for publishers like Gollancz, Orbit, Del Rey, Angry Robot, Tor UK, HarperCollins Voyager, Little, Brown and Abacus.
I write Science Fiction and Fantasy novels – currently unpublished, a situation I’m working towards changing – and I’m represented by the John Jarrold Literary Agency. I recently completed an MA in Creative Writing at The University of Manchester, passing with a merit.
I’ve worked as a freelance reader for the last thirteen years, doing editorial reports on manuscripts for major publishers and independent clients.
(I also have a YouTube channel – Narrowboat Zero Gravity – which currently deals with my adventures in the world of narrowboats, and documents my journey towards a very big life change…)
You can find full details of my work on my CV, or my What I Do page.
I’m not hugely active on social media right now, but you can follow me on Facebook, keep up with my stream-of-consciousness rambling on Twitter, or check out my strange taste in comics, art and Kaiju Gifs on Tumblr. And if you’ve got a question about writing, comics, science fiction, or anything in particular, feel free to fire it my way.
Thanks for stopping by!
