Author Profile: Stephen Hunt

On Wikipedia

Stephen Hunt had had numerous shorts and other writings beforehand began his rise to prominence on the SFF scene with the publication of his Steampunk / Gas Lamp Fantasy book The Court of the Air. This was published in a three-book deal, the subject of a high-level bidding war between the major publishers and won by Harper Voyager, was extended to six and became the Jackelian series. His latest, the Far-Called series, was acquired and published by Gollancz.

Known to have been something of a pioneer of the internet, it’s perhaps no surprise that he’s rather cannily grabbed two very broad, genre-based names for his Facebook pages (above) for the fans of his own works and of the genres themselves.
