Gary Raymond is a novelist, critic, poet, and editor. In 2012 he was one of the founding editors of Wales Arts Review. His debut novel, For Those Who Come After, was published by Parthian in 2015. Raymond is a regular commentator on Welsh art and culture for BBC Wales, but his writing has taken him as afar afield as Japan and India. He has written on subjects as diverse as new wave horror cinema to the life and works of Arthur Koestler. He is also presenter of Wales Arts Review’s OffScript podcast series.
His novel, The Golden Orphans (Parthian, 2018), was chosen to our 2018 Bookcase, and Gary attended the launch of the Arabic translation of this novel in Cairo Book Fair in Janurary 2020.
