Richard Kellum

Richard Kellum is a novelist living in London. He writes about the shadows of the here and now because sometimes the creatures who inhabit those realms stick their tongues out at us. Being egotistical and (if we're honest) rather needy, these creatures demand that someone mythologize their actions via fictive prose. Otherwise, said creatures have promised Richard they will reach deeper into our dimension and touch us with hands that feel coated with chilly mud, though what they actually coated with, they won't say. They've speculated on the joys of hiding in our trees and mesmerizing us with song. Richard hopes they won't go so far as cracking open our skulls and licking our brains. But they've joked about it and, with these guys, you never can tell.

This is Richard's website. He doesn't have much on it right now, but he's happy for it to sit here, though admittedly it's rather blank. Someday he may add more content. But right now, he's more concerned with trying to get himself to write a new novel. It's been a while.

Oh, and the picture at the side that depicts him all fresh-faced and smiling? Yeah, it's years out of date. Since it was taken, Richard has passed through further of time's abrasions, trafficked with greater demons, and held concourse with beings terrible and fair under the silver moon. This has left him with grey streaks in his hair and a few inconvenient facial creases.

Richard hopes you'll check back here from time to time and listen for the music of the creatures hiding in the trees, because if he doesn't find a way of writing a new novel soon, those creatures will migrate to your back yard. They've said so. They've said they will sing for you from the branches of the trees nearest your bedroom window when it rains, or when the full moon shines.

In the meantime, Richard wishes you a happy Halloween, no matter the time of year, because, well, Halloween, right?
