Chaz Brenchley (born Oxford, 4 January 1959) is a British writer of novels and short stories, associated with the genres of horror, crime and fantasy. Some of his work has been published under the pseudonyms of Ben Macallan[1] and Daniel Fox.

Winner of the British Fantasy Society's August Derleth Award in 1998 for Light Errant (and not, as often stated, the Outremer series), he has also published three books for children and more than 500 short stories in various genres. His time as Crimewriter-in-Residence at the St Peter's Riverside Sculpture Project in Sunderland resulted in the collection Blood Waters. Brenchley has also been writer in residence at the University of Northumbria.[2]

Charles de Lint praised Dispossession as "one of those increasingly rare books that remind you just how satisfying fiction can be."[3]
