Jonathan Wood lives in London and is the proprietor of the Arbor Vitae Press and has written and published a clutch of sought-after small press works, including 6 issues of the esoteric literary journal Through the Woods as well as four volumes of poetry by award-winning Anglo-Welsh poet, Nigel Humphreys. His own fiction has been extensively published by Zagava, Ex Occidente/Mount Abraxas, Raphus and Egaeus as well as literary articles for the Private Libraries Association and Tartarus Press. He is an inveterate book collector and an occasional book dealer, specialising in the obscure by-ways of literature, shadowing the London rare book scene for thirty five years. Jonathan is currently working on a biographical checklist of his literary life and output alongside various other licorice and sinister prose projects. He is very proud to be co-editor of 'Infra-Noir', the ground-breaking literary gazette published by Zagava, as well as bringing to dear 'life' the darker pleasures of the English seaside in the novella 'The Delicate Shoreline Beckons Us' just released onto the tide by. Jonathan is also editing and writing an introduction for the forthcoming collection of ghost stories by Nigel Humphreys, to be published by Zagava, later this year.
