Author and beagle, carrying their winter weight

My name is Gareth Southwell. I’m a writer, illustrator and philosopher who lives in South Wales in the UK.

I’ve been involved with philosophy for over thirty years and have a PhD in death, which has been read by exactly four people (including myself). I also write sci-fi, and my novels are just a thinly fictionalised version of my thesis, with most of the boring bits taken out and replaced with robots and people swearing in Welsh. Aside from that, I design and illustrate books for a living.
