Tony Richards sold his first short story at the age of twenty-one and hasn’t stopped since. He has written science fiction, mystery, and mainstream tales, as well as dark fantasy, and has appeared in most major magazines and anthologies in the genre. He has been nominated for both the Bram Stoker and British Fantasy Awards and his work has been highly praised. When not writing, he likes to travel, and he has based a good deal of his writing on his journeys to far-flung corners of the world. He lives with his wife in his native town of London, England, and is a self-confessed Amerophile and a frequent visitor to the United States.
