Author of The Age of Television
Somewhere in the forests of Vancouver Island, in scenic British Columbia,
Martin Phipps lives with his wife and daughter in a hilltop house whose
rock-walled front-deck looks a lot like the ramparts of Elsinore. Ravens cry
in the oak trees, racoons rustle in the underbrush, morning fog fills the
hollows-you get the picture. Ideal as the place is for an open-air
production of Hamlet-the lawn below the deck could seat 50-the author's too
shy to act. (Plus there's probably by-laws.) So instead, he writes.
His fiction is forthcoming online in the Copperfield Review and the 13th Warrior
Review, and is currently in ken*again, The Sidewalk's End, and elsewhere.
When not earning a living (in a dairy plant, where the only culture is...you
guessed it...bacterial!), or parenting, he reads Anthony Burgess, Thomas
Pynchon, the Encyclopaedia Britannica; or else watches Chinese movies,
especially ones starring that charming ingénue, Gong Li; and drinks litres
of very strong tea; and tries not to think how old, alas, he's getting (30).
