Nick Smith reads his short story ‘Altostratus’

Nick Smith has been writing short stories, flash-fiction, essays and longer works the best part of his adult life, occasionally dabbling in poetry. He is a voracious reader and loves films and whilst his work tends towards a strong, imaginative content, he has a philosophical outlook and a firm belief in the ‘reality of fiction’. At present Nick is undertaking the final edit of his current novel which, whilst classed as fiction, does possess a semi-autobiographical element.
