B.G. Hilton – Author


My name is BG Hilton, and I am an an Australian writer. I’m basically pretty okay, once you get to know me. I studied creative writing at the University of Newcastle and the University of Technology, Sydney. My interests include Steampunk, Frankenstein, Dr Who, travel, and food. One time I slept through a riot. In my defense, it was a pretty small riot and I was very tired.

I live with my wife in Sydney.

  1. I just came here minutes ago, and so far I love it! Thoughtful, professionally written commentary of at least a few topics that torment my curiosity. I was searching for any cool info or graphics related to “House of Frankenstein” because I’m a thoroughly alienated Universal Horror geek and my dvr has recorded “House” last night was hosted by a classic horror host, Svengoolie. I was/am at work, so am getting excited to watch it when I go home. I realized that was a horrible set of sentences, and apologize. I work overnights sometimes, and despite the “down” time, I end up with a bit of sleep deprivation. And I was/am still at work as I write this (my job is to stay awake and be available if there’s a problem). But I’m not even conscious at this moment, as is obvious because, yeah, right, I’m going to google H of Fr and find myself reading a synopsis with photos and dry -witty analysis? What, it’s Christmas every day now? 🙂 Anyway, I’ll be back to poke around for more Frankenstein and some wry observations from your continent. Great site!!! (I write too—although there is zero evidence of that in these sentences — though not for a living; just a bit here and there). Ironically, in the first few hours of my shift, I kept my mind active by … wow it seems even weirder now– writing my own personal commentary on House of Frankenstein! 🙂 Again, great site, and I’ll be back.

  2. Mr. Hilton,

    I just nodded off, and after the myoclonic jerk jolted me awake, I read the Middle School style comment I left on your polished and professional website. Sincerest apologies; I meant no disrespect. Clearly I should not be working any third shift jobs, and if I can’t help doing so, I shouldn’t write anything and post it … anywhere! Or at least until I re-read it after 12 hours sleep.

    That being said, I can’t help laugh at the irony of a how a geeky obsession with B-Movie mad scientists and monsters is what provided me with the best objective evidence of why third shift is my cognitive Kryptonite. But I must stop writing now (do you ever get in a mode where it’s hard to stop writing?) before I again write something I regret.
    Apologies & Thanks!

  3. Thanks very much! Glad you’re enjoying the site. It’s been a while since I had to work the late shift, but I remember how it gets. You do what you have to, to keep the brain going. And there’s nothing to aplogise for in your comments, feel free any time.
