Editorial Team


Terry Martin
Amongst his previous publishing successes are the paintball magazine Born To Dye and the tabletop wargames magazine Random Factor. He worked for seven years on local newspapers before becoming a graphic designer and has written a regular monthly column for Paintball Games International magazine. His short stories have been published at Alternate Species, Dangerous Creatures, Dark Fiction and in Fiction's debut issue. He is a member of the BFS and the BSFA, but don't hold that against him!
He currently writes the graphic novel and comics review column, 'Picture This', in the BSFA's review magazine Vector

Anne Stringer
is a writer whose works have appeared in print, e-zine, and podcast form. She is co-founder, editor, and contributing writer for the Variant Frequencies podcast. She lives at Teen Central in the Land of the Winter Storm Warning.

r@t has mutated to become an important part of the Murky Depths' team.

Victoria Charvill
is a freelance proofreader and editor, as well as a closet comic and Warhammer geek. She runs her own writing group in Derby and organises a few local writing events each year including Script Frenzy and NaNoWriMo. As a result of these, she has a lot of her own writing hidden away in drawers.

Liz Veevers
Behind evey successful man there's an understanding and supportive woman. This one is very very special.

Debbie Moorhouse
is a British writer who also takes photographs. She used to be Submissions Manager for NFG and currently reads slush for ASIM and is a copyeditor for GUD magazine. The short story is her favourite form, which makes it puzzling that her shorts tend to grow into novels. Her short stories have appeared in various publications and she has had an article published in Strange Horizons.

Martin Deep
studied Graphic Design at Ware College in Hertfordshire before heading up BP Oil's design studio after a five-year apprenticeship in Print, in the days of hot metal! His favourite medium used to be oils - he's a slow worker - but Photoshop allows him more freedom, but not the unique singular product. His illustration for Gareth D Jones' "Looking In, Looking Out" in Issue #1 of Murky Depths was nominated for the BSFA's Best Artwork 2007.
