Perseus People... are the luckiest people in the world. And also some of the most talented. They come from all walks of life and are situated at various points around the planet - like strategically placed 'Sleeper Robots' waiting on the command to 'awake' and take over civilisation...

In the meantime, to stave off boredom, they write. Be afraid.

Sam Taylor

(Editor, P1 Story 'Carriers', P2 Story 'Wolfie')

Sam Taylor, the driving force behind Perseus, is an Australian science fiction author who has a science degree which he happily manages to ignore. He rehabilitates and rides horses, gets shot at occasionally and has been known to swing off cliffs on ropes to alleviate boredom. He has written over 100 short stories as well as the novels ‘Deadly Jewel’ and ‘The Eye of Shiva.’ These books are available on Amazon.

Kate Welty

Kate’s real life, her passionate internal life, has always leapt and wept, laughed and stormed within the fictions of other writers’ stories; there she lived joyfully within their realities.  Now, inexplicably, she is creating stories.  Perhaps that is good.  It is certainly interesting.
