ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ken MacLeod graduated with a B.Sc. in Zoology from Glasgow University in 1976. Following research in bio-mechanics at Brunel University, he worked as a computer analyst/programmer in Edinburgh. He's now a full-time writer, and widely considered to be one of the most exciting new SF writers to emerge in the '90s, his work featuring an emphasis on politics and economics rare in the New Space Opera, while still maintaining all the widescreen, high-bit-rate, action-packed qualities typical of the form. His first two novels, The Star Fraction and The Stone Canal, each won the Prometheus Award. His other books include the novels, The Sky Road, The Cassini Division, Cosmonaut Keep, Dark Light, Engine City, Newton's Wake, Learning the World, The Restoration Game, and Intrusion, plus a novella chapbook, The Human Front, and a collection, Strange Lizards from Another Galaxy. His most recent book is a new novel, Descent. He lives in West Lothian, Scotland, with his wife.
