Away from the page, I work for the UK Space Agency on a European programme of space robotics for advanced satellite and planetary exploration technologies. All of which comes in rather handy when coming up with new ideas for science fiction stories.
My first novel Man O’War was published in 2018 by Snowbooks, and I’ve had a few short stories published hither and yon. I’m actively seeking a literary agent.
From 2022 I will be the host of Chronscast, the new and official podcast for SFF Chronicles, the world’s largest SFF community with 20,000 members.
On my site you’ll find short stories, novellas, and blog posts ranging from 200-word bulletins to 4,000 word essays (these longer essays are collected in the “Long Reads” menu).
I was born in Forest Gate, east London, and live in Essex with my wife and two daughters.
“Dan Jones is at the forefront of a throbbing new SF subgenre.”– Naomi Foyle, author of Seoul Survivors and the Gaia Chronicles.
