Raines, Harvey

Harvey Raines is the pen name of American-Scottish writer, Phil Raines. Raines has had several stories published over the last decade, including in the most recent Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror. In 1997, he won the Bridport Prize for short fiction.

Raines’ first novel is MOONDOG, a long and multi-layered novel wherein the coming end of the world sees angels plummeting to Earth, although that is only one aspect of this 190,000-word book. The novel takes in a skewed version of the music industry, a strange ‘grease’ which allows people to sample their own lives, and a varied bunch of characters (not all entirely human) drawn into a struggle for the future of the universe. The author lives in Glasgow.
