Originally born near Oxford, England, Philip Harris now lives on the West Coast of Canada where he uses his weird mix of creative and technical abilities to write dark speculative fiction and design video games. Sometimes at the same time.

His first publication, Letter From a Victim, appeared in the award winning magazine, Peeping Tom, in 1995. Since then, his short fiction has appeared in numerous anthologies and magazines including The Jurassic Chronicles, Tales from the Canyons of the Damned, Uncommon Minds, and The Anthology of European SF. His adaptation of his short story, Pod Fifteen, won Best First Time Screenwriter (Short) at the 2024 Prague Screenplay Awards.

Not content with just writing short fiction, his published novels include the Serial Killer Z series, The Leah King Trilogy, and an homage to the old pulp science fiction serials – Glitch Mitchell and the Unseen Planet.

Philip is also co-chair of the Greater Vancouver Chapter of the Horror Writers Association, won Most Improved Player for his soccer goalkeeping performance at Dashwood Primary School, and has worked as security for Darth Vader.

Some of the book links on this site are Amazon affiliate links. That means if you click on them and then buy something, I get a small slice of the money from that purchase. It doesn’t cost you anything, it comes out of Amazon’s share of what you’re paying. Those little slices go towards paying for this website.

Thanks for dropping by.

P.S. The name Solitary Mindset comes from a line in the song Heart of Stone from the album Unfamiliar Faces by Matt Costa.
