Adrian Tchaikovsky was born in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire before heading off to Reading to study psychology and zoology. For reasons unclear even to himself he subsequently ended up in law and has worked as a legal executive in both Reading and Leeds, where he now lives. Married, he is a keen live role-player and occasional amateur actor, has trained in stage-fighting, and keeps no exotic or dangerous pets of any kind, possibly excepting his son. He's the author of the critically acclaimed Shadows of the Apt series, and his standalone novel Children of Time is the winner of the 30th Anniversary Arthur C Clarke Award for Best Science Fiction Novel.
Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky has been announced as the 30th winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the UK’s most prestigious prize for science fiction literature.
We're delighted to announce that Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky has been shortlisted for Arthur C. Clarke Award 2016.

It was also returning to a town which, […]
Upcoming releases and Eastercon 2017 schedule in brief - one month ago
