Matthew J Morrison


--Speculative Fiction Author--

horror | fantasy | science fiction




My novella 'The Netherwhere Line', which was nominated for an Australian Shadows Award, appeared in Midnight Echo Issue #14.

It's the story of teenage runaways, ​Jed and Hope, who find themselves on a train where the only way to pay for passage is to surrender their memories to the Conductor.


Can they reach journey’s end before they lose themselves completely?
