Simon McNeil is the author of The Black Trillium, a story of revolution and martial arts set in the ruins of Toronto. This novel is published by Brain Lag Publishing.
He is a project manger who deals with the minutiae of public utility and health care software projects and an essayist who enjoys seriously over-thinking genre media through the lens of structuralist and post-structuralist theory. He is a life-long martial artist, has published several articles in Kung Fu Magazine and he’s probably a little bit too fond of kung fu movies.
He lives in Charlottetown, PEI with his goblin-like dog, precocious cat, even-more-precocious daughter and his wife who has happily laid out rules to prevent the sword-through-glass-lampshade incident from ever happening again. The Black Trillium is his first novel.
