Patrick Ryder is the author of numerous short stories, most of which appeared in small-press magazines in the nineties.
His first full-length novel is entitled 'Crossed Shadows' and is available on Amazon and Smashwords. 'Crossed Shadows' sits on that tense boundary between horror and science fiction, beginning with a misguided experiment at the CERN particle accelerator in Switzerland. 'When death lurks in your own shadow, where can you hide?'
He is author of 'Spiders in your Mind I', the first of a series of anthologies of new dark fiction. If you prefer your scares served cold, these stories are for you. Not recommended for reading at bedtime because no one hears your cries when you're lost in the night-time world...
His new short story, 'Regression', is set fifty years in the future, at the point when AI inevitably surpasses the capabilities of its human creators. 'The Singularity 50' is now available in Kindle and paperback format on Amazon.
He is a professional software engineer. For several years, he worked on video games, including the successful 'Broken Sword' series. He lives in the Howardian Hills, just outside York with his wife, Jillian, and telepathic dog Odie, who is scared of his own shadow (he didn’t get it from me).
