About this author

Adam Christopher was born in Auckland, New Zealand. In 2006, he moved to the sunny North West of England, where he lives in domestic bliss with wife and cat in a house next to a canal. Adam’s short fiction has appeared in Pantechnicon, Hub, and Dark Fiction Magazine. Adam's debut novel, Empire State, is due from Angry Robot in January 2012.

When not writing Adam can be found drinking tea and obsessing over Dark Shadows, DC Comics, and 1960s Doctor Who. Adam is also very bad at épée but knows that Thibault cancels out Capa Ferro, unless the enemy has studied his Agrippa. Which he has.


Nine Worlds was brilliantly brilliant. I loved it. It’s the best UK con. It’s inclusive, diverse, young and enthusiastic. It’s a bunch of people geeking out about everything from books to comics to knitting to cosplay to RPGs and more besides. I may attempt to list the people I want to thank for making it such a great weekend, but I’ll just leave someone off and my Christmas card haul this year...
