Meet the Author

Ian Watson made a bit of a splash in 1973 with his debut novel of psycholinguistics, The Embedding, which won amongst other awards the Prix Apollo in France. After a first degree and a research degree in English Literature from Balliol College, Oxford, he lectured at universities in Dar es Salaam, then in Tokyo, then in the History of Art school in Birmingham, UK, before becoming a full-time writer in 1976. Numerous novels of science fiction, fantasy, and horror and a dozen story collections followed, all of them now available as ebooks through Gollancz's sfgateway.com - apart from Ian´s 4 delirious gothic space operas set in Games Workshop´s Warhammer 40K universe, but including the first full-length genre fiction book by 2 transgressive European authors with different mother tongues, The Beloved of My Beloved, co-authored with Italian Roberto Quaglia, one story from which won the British SF Association Award for Best Short Fiction of 2009. 9 months' spent eyeball to eyeball with Stanley Kubrick resulted in screen credit for the Screen Story of A.I. Artificial Intelligence made by Steven Spielberg after Kubrick´s lamented death. These days Ian lives in Asturias in Spain, where goblins swig cider while playing bagpipes in the green rainy hills.
