Andrew Stickland is a prize-winning poet and short-story writer whose work has appeared in numerous publications in the UK, US, Ireland and also in Finland, where he studied creative writing at the University of Jyväskylä.
He wrote a series of articles on chance, correlation and averages which were used by BBC Radio 4’s More or Less. Other work has been published by the British Fantasy Society, the Royal Statistical Society, Games Workshop, the Diplomatic Group and The Economist.
His young adult series the Mars Alone trilogy carefully adheres to the laws of physics: there is no faster-than-light travel, no gravity on board spaceships, no aliens. It is the world we know today, only 300 years further down the line. He lives in Cambridge.
