Simon Ings is the last author in our current season of Writing Comes Alive. He is the author of eight novels and two works of nonfiction. His debut novel Hot Head (just re-published this year) was widely acclaimed. He writes nonfiction for Faber, and contributes to New Scientist, and is editor of ARCFINITY Magazine. He was born in 1965 and lives in London. His writing is 'modern science fiction in full pomp: it has a multitude of ideas, a wide-ranging narrative, an almost unbelievably ambitious casting of its net, taking one narrative chance after another. It is also...beautifully written...full of colour and inventive image.' (Christopher Priest)
