Born far too many years ago, Nigel now live in Milton Keynes, middle England, with his good lady wife, and works in the IT industry in Berkhamsted. He attends the Northampton SF Writers Workshop each month, where contributors work is subjected to very constructive critique.
Nigel's ambition is to win the lottery and retire to the romantic coastline of Cornwall, there to remain until he become a part of the rugged scenery in the fullness of time. He has a motor bike that's rusting nicely, and a car that serves as target practice for any birds that happen to be around. Sometimes he and his wife go for a cycle ride. Sort of. He says "We pedal for about 200 yards then pause while pretending to adjust the chain or something. One day we hope to reach the end of the road."
Nigel has written several short stories, including The Tower, published in Shoes, Ships and Cadavers by NewCon Press, and Waif, published by Greyhart Press. He has also written a children's fantasy novel, The Scrapdragon, that he is looking to place. Currently he is working on a series of vignettes under the working title of The Village, a collection of quirky tales with a linking theme.

Of the six stories here, the two I'd read before -- "Garrison" as a stand-alone and "Lettuce" as part of a longer novel made up of interconnected stories; both reviewed elsewhere -- were among my favorites. I also liked "Ferryman", and enjoyed the ideas in the others if not always everything about their final execution. Edwards is still proving to be an interesting author but so far his longer works tend to be somewhat more successful overall. I hope he re-releases _Prism_ someday!
