Praise for A J Dalton’s writing
- SFX: ‘Empire Of The Saviours gives you an interesting setting and a devilishly good villain’
- SciFi Now magazine: ‘Engaging, filled with sacrifice, adventure and soe very bloody battles!’
- Waterstones central buyer: ‘The best young British fantasy author on the circuit at the moment’
- Sfbook.com: ‘Different, fresh and unique’
I’ve published eight novels so far, details of which can be found on my bibliography page. If you’re wondering where to start, I’d recommend The Book of Orm, Empire of the Saviours or Necromancer’s Gambit.
Here’s the ‘official’ biopic, most of which is nearly true, from Empire of the Saviours:
“A J Dalton (the ‘A’ is for Adam) has been an English language teacher as far afield as Egypt, the Czech Republic, Thailand, Slovakia, Poland and Manchester University. He has lived in Manchester since 2003, but has a conspicuous Cockney accent, as he was born in Croydon on a dark night, when strange stars were seen in the sky.
He is currently published by Gollancz, with whom he has put out the best-selling titles Empire of the Saviours (2012), Gateway of the Saviours (2013) and Tithe of the Saviours (2014). He maintains the Metaphysical Fantasy website (www.ajdalton.eu), where there is plenty to interest fantasy fans and there is advice for aspiring authors.”
And here’s my slightly cheesy publicity shot. I stick with this one cos it was taken a few years back, when I had a bit more hair:
You may want to read an interview with yours truly on the Chat About Books site (2016), Strange Alliances site (2013), the Gollancz site (2012) or from the Sept 2010 edition of the British Council magazine (BCLiFE-Oct).
Or listen to this radio interview I gave in April 2012: http://i.mixcloud.com/CBSeKS
Here’s a video about A J Dalton’s writing (filmed April 2009): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Us5cUcGxFgA
And what else is there to say? Oh yes, A J Dalton is the UK’s leading author of metaphysical fantasy… mainly because all the others are dead. It wasn’t me!
