Ben Peek



My name is Ben Peek. I’m a Sydney based author.

I write mostly fiction, of which I have had two novels published. The first was an autobiography called Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth, and was published by Wheatland Press, and illustrated by Anna Brown. A lot of people seemed to like it. Rave magazine called it “Fascinatingly mundane,” and Strange Horizons said it was, “A bit too clever.” The first one was actually a positive review, the second not so much. You can read more in the reviews section of the site. My second novel was a dystopian novel called Black Sheep, of which Paul DiFillippo at Barnes and Nobles Online compared me to Margaret Atwood and Kazuo Ishiguro, which was nice.

I have also written a few short stories, some of which have appeared in collections like Polyphony, Agog!, Forever Shores, and magazines such as Aurealis, Fantasy Magazine, Phantom, and Lone Star Stories. A few of them have been reprinted in Year’s Best collections. Also, in 2007 and 2008, I ran an online comic with Anna Brown. It was an autobiographical comic, and you can read the entire thing still, if you like.
