E.J. Babb


My name is Emily Babb-Doherty (pen name E.J. Babb). I live in Southend-on-Sea with my partner, Carl Babb-Doherty, and far too many rescue dogs and rats. By day I am a Copywriter and by night, lunch break, weekend and bank holiday I am a blogger and author.

In 2012 (with a lot of help from Shelf Abuse) I created Dystopic to openly revel in the devastatingly savage yet perpetually hopeful world of dystopian fiction. I continue to write about bleak books and movies, only now with some other sci-fi and horror stuff mixed in.

My debut novel, These Unnatural Men, was released in 2018. You can read the first chapter for free on Dystopic. I have also written a collection of dark sci-fi short stories, FOREGROUND, and a Christmas folk horror novella, The Festivities of Morkwood.

You can find out more about me on my author site.
