Stephen Bacon was born in Nottinghamshire in 1971, although he has spent most of his life within the confines of South Yorkshire. His parents bought him a collection of Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories when he was nine years old, and from then on he was lost to the written word.
His fiction has been reprinted in Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year series, and has been published in magazines such as Black Static, Shadows & Tall Trees, Cemetery Dance, The Willows, Crimewave, and in many acclaimed anthologies. His debut collection, Peel Back the Sky, was published by Gray Friar Press in 2012.
He lives with his wife and two sons, and an increasingly large collection of paperbacks. You can contact him at the email address below.
