Hal Duncan's debut, Vellum, was published in 2005 to much acclaim. Subsequent works include the sequel, Ink, and various collections gathering short fiction, essays, or poetry. His second short story collection, The Boy Who Loved Death, is forthcoming in 2015, along with a new novel, Testament, and Susurrus on Mars, a novella-length collection of Erehwynan idylls. A member of the Glasgow SF Writer's Circle, he also wrote the lyrics for Aereogramme's “If You Love Me, You'd Destroy Me” and the musical, Nowhere Town. Homophobic hatemail once dubbed him "THE... Sodomite Hal Duncan!!" (sic) He's getting a t-shirt made up.
