Sean Williams was born in the dry, flat lands of South Australia, where he still lives with his wife and family. He has been called many things in his time, including 'the premier Australian speculative fiction writer of the age' (Aurealis), the 'emperor of sci-fi' (Adelaide Advertiser), and the 'king of chameleons' (Australian Book Review) for the diversity of his output. That award-winning output includes forty novels for readers all ages, ninety short stories across numerous genres, the odd published poem, and even a sci-fi musical. He is a multiple recipient of the Aurealis and Ditmar Awards and has been nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award, the Seiun Award, and the William Atheling Jr. Award for criticism. He received the 'SA Great' Literature Award in 2000 and the Peter McNamara Achievement Award for contribution to Australian speculative fiction in 2008, and he has recently completed a PhD on matter transmitters.
