John C. Wright is a retired attorney, newspaperman and newspaper editor. The spectacular unsuccess of these ventures drove him into science fiction writing. He presently works as a writer in Virginia, where he lives in fairytale-like happiness with his wife, the authoress L. Jagi Lamplighter, and their three children: Orville, Wilbur and Just Wright. His works include The Golden Age (2002), Last Guardian of Everness (2004) and Nebula Award finalist Orphans of Chaos. His authorized sequel to A. E. van Vogt’s World of Null-A is called Null-A Continuum. His short fiction has appeared in anthologies and magazines, including Year’s Best SF 3 (David Hartwell, Ed.), Year’s Best Science Fiction (Gardner Dozois, Ed.), Year’s Best Short Novels (Johnathan Strahan, Ed.), The Night Lands (Andy W. Robertson, Ed.), Absolute Magnitude and Asimov’s Science Fiction.
