Ghost of Honour: Colin Harvey

Colin HarveyColin Harvey was born in Cornwall in 1960. He worked on a kibbutz and in a night shelter in the Midlands before joining Unilever. Colin worked for Unilever for over 20 years, including launching Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream in Iceland, and as part of the project teams rolling out Sunsilk Colour Active Shampoo in Australia, and Vaseline Body Butter in North America.

Colin became a freelance writer in 2007. He reviewed for Strange Horizons for six years, and served on the Management Committee of the Speculative Literature Foundation for five, during which time he co-judged the Travel Research Grant and the Older Writers Grant.

His short stories appeared in Albedo One,, Song of the Siren and Speculations, as well as several original anthologies. His novels are all available on Amazon.

Colin’s anthology Killers was nominated for the Black Quill Award and the British Fantasy Award.

Colin was instrumental in the founding of BristolCon and was a source of constant encouragement and inspiration to the speculative literature community in the South West. He died in 2011, but will always be at BristolCon in spirit.
