BERNICE SUMMERFIELD

Professor Bernice ‘Benny’ Summerfield is a 27th-century archeologist, diarist, adventurer, space-traveller, mother and dipsomaniac originally invented by science-fiction author Paul Cornell. She stars in a series of novels, novellas, audio dramas and short stories, published originally by Virgin and latterly by Big Finish.

I’ve been a fan of Benny since her first appearance in 1992. Recently I’ve been privileged to contribute to her ongoing saga in two short-story anthologies and two longer works.

As an additional extra, my rejected short story pitches for another Benny anthology, Something Changed, are available.
