Product description

Product Description

Garry (Douglas) Kilworth is a varied and prolific writer who has travelled widely since childhood, living in a number of countries, especially in the Far East. His books include science fiction and fantasy, historical novels, literary novels, short story collections, children's books and film novelisations. This autobiography contains anecdotes about his farm worker antecedents and his rovings around the globe, as well as his experiences in the middle list of many publishing houses. The style is chatty, the structure loose - pole vaulting time and space on occasion - and the whole saga is an entertaining ramble through a 1950s childhood, foreign climes and the genre corridors of the literary world.


Kilworth is a master of his trade. (Punch)

Garry Kilworth is arguably the finest writer of short fiction today, in any genre. (New Scientist)

Kilworth is one of the most significant writers in the English language. (Fear)



Garry Kilworth was born in Yorkshire, but lost his northern accent a long time ago. He now lives in Suffolk with his wife Annette close to a beautiful lake and open countryside. He has been an author now for nearly 40 years and has 80 novels and collections of stories published. Garry's main interests are travelling the globe and photographing wildlife, mostly in the Far East, Australia and Polynesia. Previous to his writing career he was a telegraphist with the RAF for 18 years and then 8 years with an international telecoms company.
