Dave Bradley

For 20 years I've been a magazine editor, journalist, reviewer and more. I ran the leading consumer sci-fi mag, SFX, and also launched Crime Scene and Comic Heroes. During my long stint on these titles I indulged my passion for fantastic literature. I was able to interview top authors and to evangelise genre fiction to the world. I still write book reviews for SFX. But now my day job is in the games industry looking after websites and events for Steel Media. I live and work near Bath and I'm on Twitter as @BoxDaveB.
