About Me

This is the author website of Stephen Prime, which is my pen name. I use a pen name because I want to write whatever I like without worrying about how it might sound to people who know me, so although I’m not really called Stephen Prime, this is an authentic part of who I am. Thanks for reading.

I am an unashamedly self-conscious bipedal humanoid who can trace his evolution all the way back to an insignificant cluster of living cells that came from a random formation of cosmic gas and dust. I was assembled in Yorkshire, England but now live in Tokyo, Japan. Identifying marks include a scar on my right arm, which I used to pretend was a cybernetic communication device device, and an aura of insecure arrogance. I was born angry and and my lack of faith in the future of the human race leads me to constant despair. I despise apathy and environmental destruction in all its forms. My work has been previously published in Dark Mountain, New Writing, The Vein, Randomly Accessed Poetics, Synchronized Chaos and Aesthetica amongst other places and rejected by many many more.

My writing spans a range of genres and styles. I often write acerbic or satirical short stories with horrible, nasty little twists. I have two finished novels which are both under consideration by agents.

This site is an online portfolio of my writing and a place to get in touch. If you offend easily you might want to close your eyes whilst reading the part in which I tell you to go and grow a spine since writing is all about expression and text is my main weapon.
