Jason Fischer lives near Adelaide, South Australia, with his wife and young son. By day, he works with archives for a government department, while his evenings are given over to the craftings of his imagination.
He tries to unleash the weird every time he gets behind the keyboard, and his fiction has been described by reviewers as “strikingly original” and “weirdly imaginative”, while noted for containing “greasier genre elements”.
Jason attended the Clarion South writers workshop in 2007, and has been shortlisted in the Ditmar Awards and the Australian Shadows Awards. He won the 2009 AHWA Short Story and the 2010 AHWA Flash Fiction Competitions, and is a recent Winner of the Writers of the Future contest.
