Erik Boman

Biography

Erik Boman is a writer based in Oxford, UK, where he shares a tiny house with his fiancée, two riotous daughters, a nutty dog and a sociopathic cat.

When the sun is up, he designs for a travel website. At night, he writes, or wants to.

His bookshelf is a tumultuous mess of speculative fiction, but at its epicentre are Neil Gaiman and William Gibson.

The keywords for anything he writes are 'not here' - he's a friend of any text that takes the reader out of this world, and away to other places. Sometimes even nice places.
