R.A. Crawford has always been a big time sci-fi and fantasy fan. Most of his childhood was earnestly consumed by weekend-long Final Fantasy marathons, movies he certainly wasn’t old enough to watch, and books borrowed but never returned to the local library.

After years of procrastination and despite working full-time his passion for rich space opera and high fantasy storytelling led him to finally put pen to paper on his debut novel. The resultant book, PULSE: The Trial, is the first in a series of books centered around an all-female galactic society.

Having never quite grown out of Star Wars novels, Star trek episodes, Green Lantern comic books and Final Fantasy video games Ryan currently rested in Surrey - UK where, along with his wif

It doesn't matter whether they make any sense or not at first, or even if anybody would want to read them. It only matters that you start the process of constant improvement. Plus the more you write the more ideas you have. A truly virtuous cycle!(less)

How To Write A Kicka$$ Action Scene.

I’m not the best writer. I’ve got a long of things to learn and some downright terrible habits. But if I can pat myself on the back for just one thing, it’s that I know a little bit about action and how to write it.

When it comes to action, I have about thirty years experience watching things get blown up, sliced open and beat down. My parents were excellent i...

PULSE by R.A. Crawford
"This novel is probably the most action packed scyfi, I might have ever read. Normally I am not a fan of the Science Fiction genre. I always seem to have the hardest time getting into the books. But The Trial has had my full attention from page one..." Read more of this review »

SIA Showcase for ...: R.A. Crawford - Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Making Stuff Blow Up 2 10 May 09, 2017 03:34PM  
“Your speech is pompous sounding, full of pride, as fits the lackey of the Gods. You are young and young your rule and you think the tower in which you live is free from sorrow: from it have I not seen two tyrants thrown? The third, who now is king, I shall yet live to see him fall, of all three most suddenly, most dishonored. Do you think I will crouch before your Gods, -so new-and tremble? I am far from that.”
Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound
