Ian Watson


Ian Watson wrote the screen story for Steven Spielberg’s film A.I. Artificial Intelligence – based on 10 months’ work with Stanley Kubrick – the popular Inquisition War trilogy and Space Marine for Games Workshop, and has produced a further 25 novels and 10 short story collections of SF, fantasy, and horror, as well as a book of poetry, The Lexicographer’s Love Song. Most recently he wrote, with Italian surrealist Roberto Quaglia, The Beloved of My Beloved (NewCon Press), a transgressive volume of tales that may be the only full-length genre fiction from two authors with different mother tongues, and with Ian Whates he co-edited The Mammoth Book of Alternate Histories. In the late 1960s he lived in Tokyo, after completing a research degree in English and French literature at Oxford, and subsequently spent some time in Tanzania. Nowadays Watson lives in the north of Spain. www.ianwatson.info
