I am, for want of a better Linean-type categorisation for my own peculiar sub-career, a science fiction journalist, and now a writer of the same. The principal difference being once I interviewed people about making stuff up, now I make my own stuff up. The latter is more fun.

I was born in 1973, the eldest of five boys, all of whom are arty media sorts, if short-tempered and, well, short (all except number 4, who is genuinely large enough to ride a horse). We were raised on the moors of Yorkshire, where we all survived to adulthood despite freezing temperatures, angry boggarts and proximity to the volatile Lancastrian border.

I began my career on SFX Magazine in 1997, where I eventually became deputy editor, before leaving to edit notable gaming magazine White Dwarf at Games Workshop. Three years later I ran away to be  involved in the launch of the ill-fated, if bold, SF magazine Death Ray, which I also edited. Since its demise in 2009 I have been wandering the media hinterlands as a pen for hire.

I live in Somerset with my wife Emma, young son Benny (yes really, and no, nobody under 107 years of age remembers Crossroads now), and a Malamute called Magnus.

    Mr Haley, My husband is looking for Hardcover book , SANCTUS Reach: Evil Sun Rising in the USA. I have found it available in France, England. It is very expensive to ship it to the USA. Will you be releasing it in the USA? I would love to surprise my husband with this book he has been wanting to read (hardcover) since it came out!
    Thanks for your time

      I personally don’t release the books, that’s my publisher, so forgive me if this information is wrong as I don’t have anything to do with all that – I just write the books! All my Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 fiction is published by Black Library, which is part of Games Workshop. It will have been released in the US already. You should either order it direct from them at http://www.blacklibrary.com, or go to one of the US Games Workshop stores (if you have one nearby – check here http://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/store/storefinder.jsp?_requestid=7029202). Although I’d ring before going to make sure they have a copy, as books like this one are released in limited numbers and are available for a limited period of time. I hope that helps.
