Benjamin Cheah


Autodidact. Independent military science fiction/fantasy thriller writer. Seeker. Human.

I’m an independent fiction writer based in Singapore. I’m a co-founder of the alternative news website The Online Citizen, and have contributed to The Independent Singapore. I currently work as a freelance writer and editor.

My fiction is inspired by a wide range of media, ideas and concepts. Expect to see influences from speculative fiction, military and espionage thrillers, and hard-boiled detective and crime thrillers, music, games, television, movies, and more.

In my writing, I aim to explore the human condition, to plumb the depths of the soul and to soar to the farthest reaches of consciousness. It’s been an incredible journey, and I look forward to walking it with you.
