​Charles Christian is a barrister and Reuters correspondent turned writer, podcaster, and award-winning tech journalist. The Urban Fantasist website is home to his tales of geek stuff, folklore, and the weird – as well as anything else that intrigues him. His best known book is Writing Genre Fiction – Creating Imaginary Worlds: The 12 Rules. He also writes and presents the weekly Weird Tales Radio Show and, a UK national newspaper really did commission him to go on a werewolf hunt!

In 2017 he was named by Sage UK as one of the UK’s Top 100 Business Influencers in his capacity as an individual “whose commentary and social influence help to drive ideas and change within the small business sector”.

He was born with a caul over his face AND during one of the “chime hours”. According to folklore, being a caul-shrouded chime-child means he can’t drown at sea but he can see ghosts and talk to the Fae (faerie folk) without fear of coming to harm. Superpowers he has so far never needed to use.
