Ed Greenwood

Ed Greenwood is an amiable, bearded Canadian writer, game designer, and librarian best known as the creator of the Forgotten Realms fantasy world. He sold his first fiction at age six, and over the almost five decades since, has published more than 200 books that have sold millions of copies worldwide in over two dozen languages. Ed writes fantasy, SF, horror, steampunk, and pulp adventure, in prose and in comic books, and has won several dozen writing and gaming awards, including multiple Origins Awards and ENnies. He was elected to the Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts and Design Hall of Fame in 2003. He has judged the World Fantasy Awards and the Sunburst Awards, hosted radio shows, acted onstage, explored caves, jousted, and been Santa Claus (but not all on the same day). Ed shares an old Ontario farmhouse with his wife and the head of the household, a small but imperious cat. This ramshackle mansion sags under the weight of more than 80,000 books. Ed’s most recent novels include The Iron Assassin, a steampunk romp from Tor Books;
Spellstorm, a Forgotten Realms book from Wizards of the Coast; and Hellmaw: Your World Is Doomed!, the first release from The Ed Greenwood Group.
