Edward M. Grant spent his childhood in the South-West of England and studied Physics at Oxford, but now lives in Canada. He wrote magazine articles and worked on numerous indie movies in and around London, including co-writing a vampire movie that was later shot in California. He has travelled all over the world, been a VIP at several space shuttle launches, survived earthquakes and a tsunami, climbed Mt Fuji and visits nuclear explosion sites as a hobby.
He grew up on pulp horror and SF novels and still has a soft spot for both. However, his background as a physicist helps him write stories toward the harder end of the SF spectrum.
