Welcome. I'm Wm Henry Morris. I read, write and edit fiction. My primary interests are literary fiction — especially the modernist novel — and speculative fiction — especially literary fantasy, urban fantasy, the weird, and far future SF (dying earth). And I like my speculative fiction to skew literary and my literary fiction to not shy away from the fantastical.
