About Derek Prior

"Derek Prior always produces masterpieces of storytelling, with great characters full of life, relentless plots, and gripping and intense fight scenes." Mitchell Hogan

"Like Bernard Cornwell on 'shrooms!" Dinorah Wilson

Internationally bestselling and award winning author Derek Prior excels in fast-paced, high stakes epic fantasy adventure stories in which good ultimately triumphs, but always at a cost.

Taking familiar fantasy tropes as a point of departure, Prior expands upon them to explore friendship, betrayal, loyalty and heroism in worlds where evil is an ever-present reality, magic is both a curse and a blessing, and characters are tempered in battle.

Winner of best fantasy novel 2012 (The Nameless Dwarf: The Complete Chronicles)

Fantasy Faction semifinalist for the SPFBO 2018 (Ravine of Blood and Shadow)

Reviews of The Attic by Derek Prior

Filipa Maia reviewed on Dec. 27, 2019

The reader in me couldn't be more happy with this book: zombies and the occasional 'Doctor Who' reference... Oh boy!
This short story reminded me a lot of 'The Walking Dead' right at the beginning (you know... when TWD was still a great show!) when they show us the story of Morgan and his little boy.
But this story is very different... apparently people can become zombies when attacked by animals and zombies appear to be a little smart... like they have some kind of muscle memory that makes them hunt for the people they loved.
I really hoped for a different end... that somehow, 'The Doctor' (David Tennant - my favorite, of course) would show up and rescue the boy. But the end that the author wrote makes a lot more sense.
