About Bryn Hammond

I live in Australia. Ex-British.

Always a writer, but it’s with Amgalant I settled down. Before that, I spent years over a creative translation of Beowulf, and on unfinished sf/f novels with an inclination to New Weird – often a historical setting with extraterrestrials. Now it’s simply Mongols. An encounter with the Alexiad in my teens captured my imagination on behalf of steppe peoples, and afterwards I saw Gibbon’s Decline and Fall from a barbarian perspective.

I’m interested in the convergences and intersections of history and imaginative work. I’ve understood the past through its written arts; and I think it’s possible to write decent history as art, too.
