About Alex James

I’m a science fiction/fantasy writer who lives in Leeds, United Kingdom. I’m an avid reader, of indie and traditionally published books. Most of my inspiration comes from the neurological disorder/condition Asperger Syndrome, which I am diagnosed with, and characters I create also have traits of this condition. It’s inevitable, I suppose.

I’ve been writing since 2009/2010, when I wanted to explore an idea about aliens who thought and interacted differently on a sandy planet. Since then I’ve written and self-published science fantasy and epic fantasy novels 2012-2015, which I consider to be the beginning of my writing career.

Recently I’ve been reading and researching science fantasy, in particular space opera and sword-and-planet, because I have a special connection with these genres. It could be because of heroism and the freedom the writer has in writing science fantasy, or maybe it’s just because it’s fascinating.

My interest in science fiction and fantasy began when I dropped out of university, having struggled to cope with the system of learning. I used to pop down to local libraries to satisfy my intellectual stimulation, picking up books with the nicest covers then seeing if the descriptions struck a chord with me. I discovered Alastair Reynolds, Peter F Hamilton, R Scott Bakker, Drew Karpyshyn, Philip K Dick and Mark Charan Newton. I identified with their stories, opening my interest and imagination, and paving the way for self-discovery and self-expression in the form of writing.
