About the Author:

I was born in Yorkshire, England. When I was 10 years old my grandfather gave me a copy of A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and from then on I was hooked on science fiction and fantasy. I worked for Scotland Yard before moving to Japan for ten years to lecture in literature and philosophy. To date my writing has included nonfiction work on literature and cinema, and movie and TV scripts. I co-produced in the Japanese film industry for a while, when I lived in Tokyo. My secret burning passion has always been to write the kind of imaginative and experimental Science Fiction and Fantasy I loved as a kid in the 1970s - so that's the path I've set myself on now. My favourite authors include (in no particular order) Michael Moorcock, Jack Vance, Gene Wolfe and Mervyn Peake.
