About Simon Bestwick

Hi there, and welcome to my Patreon page. My name’s Simon Bestwick, and I write horror.


I also write crime and even occasionally SF. I’m the author of a post-apocalyptic epic called the Black Road (Hell’s Ditch, Devil’s Highway, Wolf’s Hill – the final book, Road’s End, will be out later this year.) I love telling stories, and using them to try and make sense of this crazy world.


So far there’ve been seven novels, four story collections, a couple of chapbooks and a host of individual stories that have popped up in magazines like Black Static and multiple anthologies, including Best British Fantasy, The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror and The Best Horror of the Year. I've twice been shortlisted for the British Fantasy Award.


Your support can make a huge difference, and you'll get exclusive access to new, original fiction – I’m currently serialising a full-length novel, The Mancunian Candidate, and I'm also writing a novella (or possibly novel!) called The Harrowing in 'real time' here on Patreon - that is, every day I write the next instalment of it and post it up straight here on the page.


In addition, I’m able to offer a limited number of mentorships to other writers: if you have stories of your own to tell, I’ll answer your questions and critique your work.


I’d love to welcome you aboard the Good Ship Bestwick. With your help, I’m sure I can achieve great things.

What difference will this make?
In a way, this will be the most important one, because I'll know I have an audience and that it's worthwhile continuing to update the page.
