Stu West

Scottish, but in Canada.

LATEST NEWS: My story The Autumn of June is available to read online at Fireside Magazine.


I'm a Scottish writer resident in Canada. Recently, my science fiction stories have appeared in Fireside Magazine and Uncanny. Less recently, I wrote scripts for the Trailer Park of Terror horror anthology comic book series. My non-fiction work includes liner note essays for album reissues by Big Break Records.

My academic background is in biology and I spent a decade working in bioinformatics for the UK biotech industry. I have many strong opinions about data visualization and the correct uses of R and git.

Since 2016, I have been living in Ottawa with my Canadian wife and our two cats.
