Lachlan Walter is a writer, science-fiction critic and nursery-hand (the garden kind, not the baby kind). He is the author of two books: the deeply Australian post-apocalyptic tale The Rain Never Came, and the upcoming Kaiju story-cycle We Call It Monster. He also writes science fiction criticism for Aurealis magazine and reviews for the independent ‘weird music’ website Cyclic Defrost, his short fiction can be found floating around online, and he has completed a PhD that critically and creatively explored the relationship between Australian post-apocalyptic fiction and Australian notions of national identity.
He loves all things music-related, the Australian environment, overlooked genres and playing in the garden, and he hopes that you’re having a nice day. For more information, check out www.lachlanwalter.com
Lachlan has written several blog posts and is a valued member of the review team at Aussie Speculative Fiction. His short story, ‘When the Lights Went Out’ was published in our anthology, ‘Beginnings.’
