Gyrus

Gyrus

Writer based in London. Obsessions include prehistoric consciousness, depth psychology, cosmology, animism, and Alan Partridge. He's the author of North (2014), and the publisher behind the acclaimed underground journals Dreamflesh (2006) and Towards 2012 (a long time ago).

He grew up in the fenlands of south Lincolnshire, and studied film and drama at the University of Reading. After graduating in 1993, he moved to Leeds and lived on the dole, becoming immersed in campaigns against the Criminal Justice Bill, DIY zine culture, and the exploration of megalithic monuments. He edited and published The Unlimited Dream Company zine and Towards 2012 journal, and wrote the pamplets The Devil & the Goddess and Verbeia: The Goddess of Wharfedale.

In 1999 he moved to London to work building websites, and since 2005 he has specialised in WordPress websites for charities and non-profits. The launch of Dreamflesh Journal in 2006 was soon sidelined by plans for a book emerging from research in the ’90s which converged on the significance of the pole star. This manifested in 2014 as the epic study North: The Rise and Fall of the Polar Cosmos.
