I’ve had short stories and poetry published in Postscripts, Jupiter, Alt Hist, and the original anthologies Catastrophia, Vivisepulture, The Monster Book for Girls, Where Are We Going? and The Maginot Line. In 2012, I edited the original anthology Rocket Science for Mutation Books. I am the founder and owner of Whippleshield Books, through which I have published my Apollo Quartet. The first book of the quartet, Adrift on the Sea of Rains, was published in April 2012. It has been nominated for the BSFA Award. The second book, The Eye With Which The Universe Beholds Itself, was published in January 2013.
This is my blog.
I have another blog. It’s about books on space exploration and the space race. It’s called A Space About Books About Space.
And I have yet another blog. It’s where I post my occasional poems. It’s called sferse.
Ian Sales was only three when Neil Armstrong landed on the Moon, but he didn’t see it on television because he grew up in the Middle East. He lived in Qatar, Oman, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, before returning to the UK for schooling, spending only the holidays abroad. After graduating from university, he returned to Abu Dhabi to work – first for the Higher Colleges of Technology, and then for a national oil company. He came back to the UK in 2002 and settled in Yorkshire, where he now works as a database administrator for an ISP.
