Monsters, machines and roaming cities, insanity, betrayal and lust! Author and avid reader, BP Gregory was always an oddment to justify the most terrible things. With such tales you shouldn’t always feel comfortable or safe.
Coming from a sober, orderly corporate background she has been a student of archaeology and a dilettante of psychology, biological science and prepping culture. However it was her love of writing about people that drew her strongly to science fiction, horror and urban fantasy: all engines for frogmarching hapless characters through extreme situations. A process of painfully peeling back layers to discover what, if anything, lurks within. Do we each treasure some inviolate core of self, kept safe from our actions and choices? Would it matter if nobody saw it?
BP Gregory is the author of three novels including the newly released Something for Everything (second in the Automatons series). A stroll down life’s eerie back alleys with a few collections of short stories, and a horror novelette which is a youthful messy love letter to her home town round out the picture. She lives in Melbourne with her husband where she is currently writing The Town, an Australian horror novel about a mysterious burnt out town that should never have been there.

Amazing, grim, and horrible. I loved it! This author can WRITE!!! Poetic and beautiful. Obviously, the writer has more than a story and takes wonderful, rare pride in its crafting. Quite disturbing.

Both starkly beautiful and profoundly disturbing, BP Gregory's Automatons is a novel of a dystopia that's just around the corner and all too plausible. With characters that you can't help but like despite their many flaws, and a very Australian setting and dialogue (coffee ruined a perfectly good keyboard the first time I encountered 'nose-goblins'), I cannot recommend this story highly enough.
