Say hello

Published on the New Scientist Culture Lab website and in the Alarmist Magazine, I write mainly dark, surreal tales with a touch of science fiction. My novel Grind Spark was longlisted for the Bath Novel Award 2014.

If you happen to enjoy a dialogue based around 140 characters, you can find me on twitter as @tamrogers.

Nice to meet you, fiends.[/vc_column_text][vc_tweetmeme type=”follow” follow_user=”tamrogers” large_button=”true”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image source=”external_link” external_style=”vc_box_circle” custom_src=”http://www.thedustlounge.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Profile-pic.jpg”%5D%5B/vc_column%5D%5B/vc_row%5D%5Bvc_row full_width=”stretch_row” disable_element=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1490215003598{background-color: #000000 !important;}”][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1487977090071{background-color: #000000 !important;}”][vc_column][vc_btn title=”LATEST NEWS AND MIND MEANDERINGS ON THE BLOG” style=”outline” shape=”square” color=”white” size=”lg” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thedustlounge.com%2Fthoughts%2Fblog%2F|||” button_block=”true”][vc_basic_grid post_type=”post” max_items=”4″ element_width=”3″ gap=”0″ item=”masonryGrid_OverlayWithRotation” grid_id=”vc_gid:1490214464054-3e7baf49e29184a42a5ac4886a2091a0-10″ taxonomies=”439″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
