This is the website of editor and author, Gary Budden.

I write fiction and creative non-fiction about the intersections of British sub-culture, landscape, psychogeography, hidden history, nature, horror, weird fiction and more. A lot of it falls under the banner 'landscape punk'. My work has appeared in numerous magazines and journals. A full list can be found here.

My debut collection, Hollow Shores, was published by Dead Ink Books in October 2017.  I was shortlisted for the 2015 London Short Story Award, and my story ‘Greenteeth’ was nominated for a 2017 British Fantasy Award and adapted into a short film by the filmmaker Adam Scovell. In 2018 I was a writer-in-residence as part of City of Stories.

M John Harrison called me 'redoubtable'.
