Steven Poore writes epic fantasies (Malessar’s Curse – Heir To The North & The High King’s Vengeance), ripping space adventures (The Empire Dance), and other shaggy dog tales. He has been onstage with Jane Horrocks and the RSC, and co-produced the Sheffield theatre premiere of Terry Pratchett’s Wyrd Sisters. Steven is a founder member of the Sheffield SF&F Writers’ Group, where much of Heir to the North was drafted and workshopped. You can find his short fiction in several of the Fox Pockets anthologies available from Fox Spirit Books. Steven lives in Sheffield with a crafty partner, a three-legged cat, and a critical mass of books and vinyl records. Somehow he also manages to find time to organise the semi-irregular SFSF Social events.
Incidentally, Mr Pratchett had been expecting someone taller.
