Please note: From February 2012, Spike Magazine is on hiatus. Although we will continue to publish interviews, we will not be reviewing books, music or films for the time being.
SpikeMagazine.com is a website about books, culture and ideas. Spike has been online since 1995 and, thanks to a small army of contributors, has hundreds of features, reviews, and interviews with writers, artists and musicians.We have put together a FREE 600-page book which provides a good introduction to the site and its material. You can download it here.
You can get in touch through the form below or leave comments on specific articles. There is a complete list of Spike contributors and their individual contact details on the Contributors page.
Spike originated with Chris Mitchell in 1995. He is a British writer and web designer currently based in Bangkok, Thailand, where he is now a Field Editor for Scuba Diver AustralAsia magazine and a regular contributor to Asian Diver magazine. He also runs the Thailand travel site Travelhappy and the Asian scuba diving site Divehappy. Chris still gives considerable technical and editorial input to Spike.
Please do not email asking for specific authors’ contact details. If they are not already publicly available, it means the author wishes to maintain their privacy.
If you are really desperate to get in contact with an author, write to their publisher asking if they will forward a letter. Invariably the publisher will agree. Then send your letter care of the publisher. You’d be surprised how many authors respond personally to intelligent enquiries. Most publishers have their own websites these days, so you can also try emailing the publisher and finding the relevant publicist or editor who looks after the author you wish to contact.
Please be courteous and stay on topic. If your comment does not add to the conversation, it will be removed. Insults and anything deemed as spam will also be removed. Please email Spike Magazine with typos, corrections, criticisms or any other suggestions you may wish to address. You should also use email for any questions you have, as we cannot guarantee a response through comments. Thank you.
