Born and raised in Australia, Calum Lott is the author of the upcoming Science Fantasy Duology, A Dirge For Cascius, with Part I set to release in mid-2024. With inspiration from Hyperion, True Detective, Dune, the video game Disco Elysium, and, as always, Lord of the Rings, this will be the first of many tales set in the vast galaxy, Valsollas. In the meantime, you’ll find him adequately playing guitar, breaking controllers gaming, reading at a snail’s pace, watching movies (LOTR over and over), annoying his beautiful girlfriend or sitting at his laptop writing stories whilst getting a sore arse.
