Mark Blackham – Author

Stories written not far from here, not far from now


I write about ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances not too different from these, in ordinary times not far from now, and in ordinary places not far from here.

My first novella, A Sky of Wretched Shells, is available here in paperback or ebook format.

Far more radical forms and themes are written with my associate Carlington Black.

I live in Wellington, New Zealand with my wife, and an alternating number of our four adult children. In my spare time I kayak. I am founder of the New Zealand natural burials association. My community service is as a boxing official (referee and judge).
