About

Author and beagle, carrying their winter weight

Gareth Southwell is a writer, illustrator and philosopher who lives in South Wales in the UK. He has a PhD in death, which has been read by exactly four people (including himself). His novels are just a thinly fictionalised version of this, with most of the boring bits taken out and replaced with robots and people swearing in Welsh. Sign up to his monthly email list for news, views, and free stories from the Merrywhile universe.

Information on his philosophy and non-fiction writing can be found here. You can see his illustration work here. He is also on Facebook and the Twitter.

Some of his books (sci-fi and philosophical) are for sale directly in his shop.
