Today on the Speculative Fiction Cantina we are pleased to welcome writers Alex Azar and Alastair Swinnerton
Alex is an author bred, born, and raised in New Jersey. He had aspirations beyond his humble beginnings, goals that would take him to the skyscrapers of Metropolis and the alleys of Gotham. Alex was going to be a superhero. Then one tragic day, tragedy tragically struck. He remembered he wasn't an orphan and by law would only be able to become a sidekick. For now Alex bides his time writing about the horrors and mysteries he aims to one day valiantly tackle.

I’ve been writing most of my life, but I’ve managed to make a living out of it for the last twenty five years or so. I started out wanting to write novels, but got distracted by the animation industry, and worked on many well-known shows, including ‘The Wombles’, ‘Sabrina, Secrets of a Teenage Witch’ and my own series, ‘The Baskervilles’, which has become a bit of a cult. I was the co-creator of Lego® Bionicle®, and even got nominated for a Bafta, for writing and co-producing the CBBC Christmas Special ‘The Tale of Jack Frost’. But now, twenty five years later, I have returned to my first love, novels. My first one, The Multiverse of Max Tovey, a children’s and Young Adult fantasy novel, was published on August 31st 2015 by European Geeks Publishing.
