Sean Wright writes fantastical, surreal, & weird speculative fiction that blends elements of horror, sci-fi, and fantasy.
"Sean Wright accomplishes something in his maddened prose that few fantasists have ever managed. Like Robert E. Howard, Wright plays with the raw stuff of fantasy, the malleable and mutable protoplasm of genre. Jaarfindor is a dreamland made real, rooted in the concrete of the here-and-now but utterly foreign at the same time. This is powerful, mythic stuff. This is reaching into the sky and pulling down fire. Sometimes unharnessed, always bright and hot, often dangerous. But it works." Gabe Chouinard, founder of Fantastic Metropolis.
In 2005, he was named as one of Hatchard's Authors of the Year, along with Susanna Clarke, V.S. Naipaul, and other bestselling authors of the official Royal bookshop, Piccadilly, London, England. His books have featured at the world's largest independent bookstore, Foyle's, London, England, as a continuing favourite bestseller.
Dark Tales of Time and Space was nominated for the 2006 Lancashire Children's Book of the Year Award in the UK. See the individual titles for other awards nominations.
