Hi there! I’m Andrew Hope and I like to write. Currently living in St. Paul, Minnesota with my wife, Becky, I’m originally from Glasgow, Scotland, and although I’ve lived in the US for half my life, I still consider myself a Glaswegian through and through and lifelong fan of Glasgow Rangers!.
My small claims to fame are that I drew one of comic book superstar (and all-round nice guy) Mark Millar‘s first comic books, named The Shadowmen, for Trident Comics
and wrote Fantomex Max, for Marvel Comics, the first love of my life.
My preferred disciplines are screenwriting, and long- and short-form “Weird” fiction. The biggest influences on my work are (in ascending order) early Clive Barker (Hellraiser, The Books of Blood), Ramsey Campbell (Demons by Daylight, The Doll Who Ate His Mother), and the master, H.P. Lovecraft.
At the time of writing this, I am in the final stages of a two volume anthology of short horror fiction, to be published in 2017, and will break ground on the first novel in a trilogy (of course!) in the fall of 2017 also.
This is my first hesitant, trembling step into the shallow end of the blogging pool and will contain the random thoughts about life, movies, and writing that I decided to transition from Facebook and Twitter.
Thanks for stopping by, and please continue to do so as the content grows!Follow @sputnik67
