Richard Smyth

Richard Smyth was born and raised in Wakefield, lived in Leeds for a few years and is now in Saltaire. He has been a freelance writer for about six years. He has published two non-fiction books: Bumfodder (Souvenir Press, 2012) and Bloody British History: Leeds (The History Press, 2013) and has had short fiction published in The Stinging Fly, The Fiction Desk, Cent, Vintage Script and a Spilling Ink anthology.

In Richard’s story for Lovers’ Lies, This Isn’t Heat, the air-con is broken, Mr. Aftad is cooking curry, and James Mercury, in search of a friend, makes the acquaintance of Mr. Aftad’s spice-wise daughter.

Richard’s story Heriot is in Weird Lies, and might be about time travel, but then again, it might not.

Richard’s Story for Liberty Tales is Witchburning
