Meet the Author

Stephen Hunt is a fantasy and science fiction author who lives in Spain and the UK. He is best known for his best-selling Jackelian fantasy series of novels from HarperCollins, also the publisher of J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis in the UK.


The Jackelian world is a fantasy adventure set in a far-future Earth where the passage of time has erased almost all memory of our current world from history. Electricity is now unreliable and classed as a dark power, with many of the nations of the world existing at a Victorian level of development and relying on steam-power, mechanical nanotechnology and biotechnology to survive and prosper.


It is a world of strange creatures, flashing blades, steammen servants, airship battles and high adventure.


Each novel is written as a stand-alone work, but share the same world and many of the same characters who criss-cross between the novels (a technique shared with fellow British fantasy author Terry Pratchett and his Discworld series).


Foreign language and international editions of the six novels of the Jackelian series have been sold to Tor Books (USA), Albin Michel (France), Verlagsgruppe Random House (Germany), Enterbrain Manga and Anime (Japan), Edições Saída de Emergência (Portugal), Paidós (Spain), AST (Russia), and the Anhui Literature and Art Publishing House (China).


Stephen maintains his own web site over at StephenHunt.net and when he is not writing, he can be found indulging in such interests as cooking, gardening, collecting comic-books, and building his collections of genre novels.

    A good sequel

    Hunt continues the Sliding Void series right where the first book left off. He gives us new insight into three of the main characters, introduces a few new ones, and continues to build the overall story arc. All done well.

    One strong criticism of this book is the apparent lack of editing and/or proofreading. Misspellings, poor word choices, and bad grammar all need to be addressed, especially since this is a decent series overall.

    I recommend it, but you must read the books in order. They are almost like a serialization of a larger narrative, not discreet and independent novels.
