Senior Editor, Canada

R. Daniel Lester is the sixth winner of the Mash Stories Competition and joined our jury in the summer of 2015.

He writes and lives in Vancouver, BC, Canada. As a keen apprentice in the story trade, he’s consumed a lot of coffee, written himself into and out of countless corners, added many words to blank pages, released a novel, Die, Famous!, and made tens of dollars along the way.

In 2009, under his own imprint, Dirt Starling Press, he published three books: poetry collection, It’s All in the Interpretation, short story collection, Caffeine Fueled Revelation Machines and the novel, Die, Famous!

His writing has also been seen in print and online in such places as Adbusters, Geist, Shotgun Honey, Bareknuckles Pulp, 365 Tomorrows, Broken Pencil and Pulp Literature.
