(24 September 1960 --)

British fanzine editor, reviewer and occasional fanwriter born in London, resident in Hua Hin, Thailand, from 2009–2020 and Liverpool, England, since 2021. He dates joining fandom to 4 June 2001, when he wandered into a pub meeting of the Reading Science Fiction Group and introduced himself by interrupting a conversation on Charles Dickens.

Fanzines include Zoo Nation (2002-2006), Big Sky (2013-2015), possibly Thailand's first SF fanzine, and the perzine The White Notebooks (2015-2020). He has also occasionally guest-edited the Hugo Award-winning fanzine Journey Planet.

Young has a background as a graphic designer, illustrator and photographer, and he contributed much of the design work for the Eastercon Orbital 2008. He has also reviewed books for Foundation, Strange Horizons and Vector, and since June 2012 has been a moderating editor at the Internet Speculative Fiction Database.

He runs the Big Sky Library, a website covering Asian speculative fiction, and also the Thai Literary Supplement, reviewing fiction in English about Thailand.
