Sean Williams is an award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author of over forty books and one hundred short stories, plus the odd odd poem for readers of all ages. He has been called many things in his time, including ‘the premier Australian speculative fiction writer of the age’ (Aurealis), the ’emperor of sci-fi’ (Adelaide Advertiser), and the ‘king of chameleons’ (Australian Book Review) for the diversity of his writing. As well as his original fiction, he has occasionally worked in universes created by other people, such as Star Wars and Doctor Who. He also enjoys collaborating, most recently with Garth Nix on their Troubletwisters series. He has a PhD on teleporters (think Star Trek) and his latest novel is Fall, the concluding volume of the Twinmaker series. He normally lives in the dry, flat lands of South Australia, just up the road from a chocolate factory, with his wife and family and pet plastic fish.
