Alexander Stronach (Kāi Tahu) is a humanoid (goblin) from Te Tai-o-Aorere, New Zealand. He is suspected of being responsible for a number of pieces of fiction and – in extreme cases – poetry. You can read more of his work at theunderstatesmen.com, or find him raising hell on Twitter at @understatesmen. His first novel, The Dawnhounds, arrives in November 2019 – a doomed ship carves through the fog; a woman must solve her own murder before its deadly cargo tears her city in half. Magic, mushrooms and murder in a swashbuckling LGBT+ Weird adventure for fans of Gideon the Ninth, The Traitor Baru Cormorant, and Borne. If you see Alexander Stronach in the wild, please contact the Tasman District Council.
