Tony Richards

Biography

My latest book - THE ASTONISHING ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES IN THE 21st CENTURY from UK publisher Endeavour Media - is certainly a bit of a departure for me.

But then I've never stuck to one particular genre. Recent books of mine include a crime novel- THE TRIBE from CD Publications - two supernatural novellas - UNDER THE ICE and THE NIGHT MANAGER - a huge collection of science fiction (below) and my latest (there've been 8 so far) collection of horror tales, THE UNIVERSAL AND OTHER TERRORS. My short work has appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Asimov's SF, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Weird Tales and numerous top anthologies. And because I've traveled widely, I frequently use places I have been to in my work. My debut novel 'The Harvest Bride' (Tor Books) was a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel, and in 2008 my collection 'Going Back' was shortlisted for the British Fantasy Award.
