My brother was killed by a giant clam, in Weston-Super-Mare.


My uncle started something with three gorillas that didn’t end well.


My cousin at Bristol Zoo? Well the less said about what happened to him the better.


Perhaps then I wasn’t the best person to volunteer to look after the giant squid. But he looked so lonesome and adorable.  I fell in love right then and there.


I’m a sucker for tentacles.

Pete Sutton has a not so secret lair in the wilds of Fishponds, Bristol and dreams up stories, many of which are about magpies. He's had stuff published, online and in book form, and currently has a pile of words that one day may possibly be a novel. He wrote all about Fishponds for the Naked Guide to Bristol and has made more money from non-fiction than he has from fiction and wonders if that means the gods of publishing are trying to tell him something. You can find him all over social media or worrying about events he’s organised at the Bristol Festival of Literature. On Twitter he’s @suttope and his Bristol Book Blog is here: He's contributing editor of Far Horizons e-magazine which can be found here:
