Timothy C. Ward is a former executive producer and Hugo Nominee of Adventures in Scifi Publishing. He has been broke and lost on the other side of the world and now dreams of greater adventures from his keyboard in Des Moines, Iowa. He recently released his second Sand Divers book, Scavenger: A.I., where two parents use an ancient technology to fight a reproducing A.I. while trying to resurrect their deceased infant. His next novel is Godsknife: Revolt, an apocalyptic battle for godhood in the rift between Iowa and the Abyss. Visit his website for news and signed copies at www.timothycward.com.

Timothy's Recent Updates

Timothy Ward is on page 43 of 288 of Not So Much, Said The Cat: The Dala Horse is two in a row for stories that amazed me with creative world building and succinct character moments. You get the idea that each spry is going to surprise you, make you feel, wrap it up in a tight package and leave you wanting another.
Not So Much, Said The Cat by Michael Swanwick

Timothy Ward is on page 28 of 288 of Not So Much, Said The Cat: Impressed by the first story, The Man in Grey. Surprising twist to a possible tragedy with moments of love, the surreal and another emotion I won't spoil the story to use. Makes me want to read another.

“Perfect, that's our plan then. But you'll have to give up being a priest first. I wouldn't want to just sit around whispering and sipping hot chocolate.”
Ted Dekker, The Priest's Graveyard

“Men and women who had worn suits for decades traded punches powerful enough to crush elephant skulls, dodged and deflected attacks too fast for the eye to follow, and died suddenly, often before the crowd registered the killing blow.
Victors and dead men were separated by a blink of the eye.”
Zachary Jernigan, No Return

“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There's no way around these two things that I'm aware of, no shortcut.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“Each killing steals a bit of humanity until a murderer is nothing more than an animal. A hunger replaces the spirit. A want for what was lost, but as with innocence, the soul can never be replaced. Joy, love, and peace flee such a vessel and in their stead blooms a desire for blood and death.”
Michael J. Sullivan, The Crown Tower

“By the time the Somnambulist had set her creaking bones to rest on their assigned landing pad, Holden had lost all patience with human stupidity.

So, of course, it came out to meet him.”
James S.A. Corey
