About this author

Born in the Caribbean, Tobias S. Buckell is a New York Times Bestselling author. His novels and over 50 short stories have been translated into 17 languages and he has been nominated for the Hugo, Nebula, Prometheus and John W. Campbell Award for Best New Science Fiction Author.

I’m going to be a visiting instructor at Shared Worlds this July. Details here.

Between teaching at Clarion at the start of July, and this at the end of July, it’s going to be a month full of teaching and travel. But I’m always delighted to meet new writers.

“But I have diplomatic immunity.” Ixtli found a window that was loose, and with some persuading, forced it open. “Care to accompany me lest my life be threatened and an incident between our respective countries occurs?”
