David is a short story writer and performer based in Manchester. His latest collection of flash fictions Spiderseed was runner up in the Best Short Story Collection category at the 2016 Saboteur Awards. He is a regular performer on the Spoken Word circuit of Manchester and beyond and he runs his own spoken word night in Stretford called Speak Easy. His weird stories explore myths, futures, the uncanny and the unsettling, with a particular focus on animals and the natural world. He can usually be found loitering on Twitter @DHartleyWriter.
I’ll be talking to David about Spiderseed – and more! – and, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for Apocalypse Books.
