Jon Courtenay Grimwood lives in England. The third book in his acclaimed Arabesk series, Felaheen, won the 2003 British Science Fiction Association Award, appeared on Locus Magazine's 2003 Recommended Reading List, and appeared on SFSite's Best of 2003 list.
"Fast yet humane, hip yet bizarre, futuristic yet embedded in the absolute present moment of the world, Jon Courtenay Grimwood's novels read like thrillers but maintain a kind of caring irony and clarity of political vision which not only make him one of the best of the new U.K. SF writers but suggest new directions for every kind of writing."--M. John Harrison, author of Light
"Defiantly individual, and works in that interesting margin where myth, futurism, literature and pop culture all interbreed." --Times, UK "Grimwood's latest tale reads as if Kurt Vonnegut were writing manga for the producers of Doctor Who."--Publishers Weekly
