Simon Petrie is a NZ-born research scientist now living in Canberra. His short fiction has appeared in Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, Aurealis, Kaleidotrope, Murky Depths, Sybil’s Garage, and arguably in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.His debut collection Rare Unsigned Copy: Tales of Rocketry, Ineptitude, and Giant Mutant Vegetables was released in 2011, he’s won the Sir Julius Vogel award for Best New Talent, was shortlisted for a Ditmar in the same category, and he’s sent out far too few short stories for consideration – although critics of his work may disagree with the last statement. He’s a member of the Andromeda Spaceways co-operative, the SpecFicNZ collective, and the Canberra Speculative Fiction guild, a judge for the Aurealis Awards, and an occasional book reviewer.
