Brazier, Paul

Tagged: Art | Author | Editor | Critic

(1950-2016) UK editor and graphic designer, active in Fandom since the early 1980s with reviews in Vector, from 1990 also reviewing for Interzone. He edited and published the three issues of the Brighton-based UK SF Magazine Nexus (which see) from 1991 to 1993; in October 1994 this Semiprozine was merged into David Pringle's also Brighton-based Interzone, of which Brazier became typesetter, graphic designer and in effect deputy editor for the next ten years until Pringle handed over the magazine to Andy Cox of TTA Press in 2004. The November 1997 and March 2001 Interzone covers were designed by Brazier from photographic originals; he also designed covers for later issues of Spectrum SF. His only professionally published work of fiction was "2066 and All That: The English Strike Back, or The Caburn Surprise" (January 2003 Interzone) with Juliet Eyeions, his wife; many other collaborative stories were self-published as Christmas cards. Brazier edited the original Anthology Quercus One: The West Pier Gazette and Other Stories (anth 2008), whose partial theme – not adhered to by all contributors – was the West Pier at Brighton. This was the first and only anthology to emerge from Brazier's web-based Quercus publishing project [see under links below], and the second to be published by his Three Legged Fox imprint. [DRL]
