Eric Brown- A Writer's Life

Eric Brown sold his first short story to Interzone in 1986. He has won the British Science Fiction Award twice for his short stories and has published forty books. His latest include the novel Guardians of the Phoenix and the children's book A Monster Ate My Marmite. His work has been translated into sixteen languages, and he writes a monthly science fiction review column for the Guardian. He lives near Cambridge, England, with his wife and daughter. His website can be found at:
Mid-list writer Daniel Ellis becomes obsessed with the life and work of
novelist Vaughan Edwards, who disappeared in mysterious circumstances in1996. Edwards' novels, freighted with foreboding tragedy and a lyrical sense of loss, echo something in Ellis's own life. His investigations lead Ellis ever deeper into the enigma that lies at the heart of Vaughan Edwards' country house, Edgecoombe Hall, and the horror that dwells there.
In a departure from his science fiction roots, Eric Brown has written a haunting novella that explores the essence of creativity, the secret of love, and the tragedy that lies at the heart of human existence.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
A Writer's Life explores the ideas of immortality, creativity, and love, as well as being a passionate evocation of the English countryside.

Q: Why did you go indie?
When Keith Brooke of infinity plus ebooks suggested he do A Writer's Life, I jumped at the chance; first published by PS Publishing, it was reprinted twice and then fell out of print: this is the perfect opportunity to get it into circulation again.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
Michael Coney, Robert Charles Wilson.
