R. G. Harrison


I write speculative fiction of many kinds, including sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. Favorite writers include Frank Herbert, H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, J.R.R. Tolkien, Ursula LeGuin, Octavia Butler, Margaret Atwood.

To me, the natural world is sacred for reasons ranging from the pragmatic to the aesthetic, and I donate 5% of my literary earnings to environmental causes. But I'm no technophobe, and I believe science, technology, and industry have a key role to play in restoring and protecting our societies and our world.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
In my head, when I first started breathing. The head is involved with breathing too. On paper, when I could first handle a pen without jabbing it into my head. At least, hard enough to bleed.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Latest books available here are my Coin of the Realm series. I wanted to write a fun fantasy trilogy - one that includes plenty of action, magic, and flirty romance stuff, but also one that takes some of the received fantasy tropes and turns them on their head. I wanted dark moments as well as comedy, and the Realm was the result.

Now I'm finishing the first draft of a much darker work. It's a posthuman gothic novel, more or less. Be on Smashwords after the editing process is through!
