Futurismic is brought to you by …

Editor-in-chief and Publisher

Paul Raven

Paul Graham Raven is a dishevelled British museum library assistant, but that’s just the day job; out of work hours, he mostly reads and writes (though never enough of the latter).

He writes book and music reviews for a ridiculous number of outlets, both print and web; he’s Reviews Editor of Interzone, the UK’s longest running science fiction magazine; he runs an independent music reviews site named The Dreaded Press, and maintains his own blog, Velcro City Tourist Board.

He also writes poetry that gets eloquent and apologetic rejection slips, and intends to actually finish some short stories of his own one of these days. In the meantime, he’s climbing the ladder of the aspiring freelance … and running this here webzine, too.
