Dr Gareth Southwell is a philosopher, writer, and illustrator living in South Wales, UK. He has been involved with philosophy for almost thirty years – studying, teaching, examining, writing – and is the author of numerous books on a range of philosophical topics, mostly aimed at a general readership.

He writes fiction under the fiendishly contrived pen name Gareth J. Southwell, and is also a professional book and magazine illustrator.

You may find him wasting time on the Twitter and periodically reviewing books he likes on LibraryThing. For updates about his writing, and the big clever thoughts that go into it, subscribe to his monthly ramblings.
