ADRIAN M. GIBSON is a speculative fiction author, podcaster and illustrator (as well as occasional tattoo artist). He was born in Ontario, Canada, but grew up in British Columbia. He studied English Literature and has worked in music journalism, restaurants, tattoo studios, clothing stores and a bevy of odd jobs. He created the SFF Addicts podcast, which he co-hosts with fellow author M. J. Kuhn. Adrian has a not-so-casual obsession with mushrooms, relishes in the vastness of nature and is a self-proclaimed “child of the mountains.” He lives in Quito, Ecuador with his wife and sons.
