Bio

Alexander Lane has almost died on several continents. When he’s not wondering whether scuba diving is truly as safe as it is incredible, he’s planning his next trip to somewhere that’s hopefully more fun than fatal, and dreaming of the many ways that space travel could be both wonderful and dangerous. He always buys good travel insurance, and so should you.

He graduated with a distinction from the creative writing MA at St Mary’s
University, Twickenham, in 2020, and currently lives in Ireland, where there are no snakes or large predators.

Current project

I published my first book in September 2022. Blood River is a horror novella loosely based on a trip to the Borneo rainforest in 2017. It’s the first in a series called Nightmare Vacations. I’m currently outlining a follow-up with similar themes and tone, based in Ireland and drawing on Irish folklore.

I have two other WIPs, the first instalments of my In Machina science fiction series about our relationship with non-human intelligence. The Awakening Of William 47 is at the beta reader stage and The Flight Of The Srama is in second draft.
