Michael Robertson

Michael Robertson is a writer from the UK with several publications to his name, both online and in print.

He writes dystopian, sci-fi, and apocalyptic fiction, though predominantly science fiction with a darker edge to it.

Michael has written stories of all kinds since his late teens and finally started publishing in 2013 after having a short story accepted by HarperCollins.

He's also had his first three books in the Alpha Plague series produced by Podium – who put together Andy Weir's The Martian – and we all know how well that turned out!

He has an active presence online – you'll find him on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and on his own website – and he's the most prolific writer that we've spoken to on the podcast to date.
