Formerly an astronomer and more recently a research project manager in a defence and aerospace company, Vaughan Stanger now writes science fiction and fantasy full time. Nevertheless, he still craves that holiday on the moon he was promised as a child. His stories have appeared in Daily Science Fiction, Abyss & Apex, Postscripts, Nature Futures, and Interzone. He has published two collections, Moondust Memories and Sons of the Earth & Other Stories, which are available as ebooks and print-on-demand paperbacks, and is hard at work on a series of SF novels.
