About

Graham Edwards

Graham Edwards was born near Glastonbury Tor and now lives in Nottingham – not such a big leap from King Arthur to Robin Hood. His formative years were spent on England’s Jurassic Coast making disturbing Super-8 films and drawing spaceships. Following a varied career as a graphic designer, scriptwriter and animator, he now works as senior staff writer at Cinefex magazine, where he writes behind-the-scenes articles on major motion pictures.

Graham’s fiction is heavy on science fiction and fantasy. His latest novel, String City, follows the adventures of an interdimensional detective through weird streets on the edge of the cosmos. Stone & Sky throws its Victorian hero on to the precarious slopes of a world-sized wall where the memories of all humanity are stored. The title of Graham’s first novel, Dragoncharm, will tell you most of what you need to know about the book, which was nominated for Best Novel in the British Fantasy Awards when published in 1995.

Short fiction by Graham Edwards has appeared in magazines and anthologies. One of the stories – Girl in Pieces – made the longlist for the Nebula Awards. He also ghostwrites novels under various pseudonyms, so there’s a chance you’ve read one of his books without even realising it.
