Edward Willett is the award-winning author of more than sixty books of science fiction, fantasy, and non-fiction for readers of all ages. His latest fantasy/science fiction novel for DAW Books, MASTER OF THE WORLD, will be brand-new at Can-Con, having released in mid-September; it’s Book 2 of his series, WORLDSHAPERS, which began last year with WORLDSHAPER). The series also provided the name for Ed’s podcast, THE WORLDSHAPERS (theworldshapers.com), featuring conversations with science fiction and fantasy authors about the creative process, a finalist for this year’s Aurora Award for Best Fan Related Work. Other recent novels include a re-release of his Saskatchewan Book Award winning young-adult fantasy Spirit Singer (Shadowpaw Press), THE CITYBORN (stand-alone science fiction from DAW Books), the five-book SHARDS OF EXCALIBUR YA fantasy series (Coteau Books), the MASKS OF AYGRIMA fantasy trilogy (written as E.C. Blake for DAW), and the PEREGRINE RISING science fiction duology for Bundoran Press. Recent non-novel releases include I TUMBLE THROUGH THE DIAMOND DUST (YNWP.ca) a collection of science fiction and fantasy poetry, illustrated by Alberta artist Wendi Nordell, and PATHS TO THE STARS (Shadowpaw Press), a collection of twenty-two of Ed’s short stories. Ed won the Aurora Award for Best Long-Form Work in English for MARSEGURO (DAW) in 2009. His nonfiction runs the gamut from local history to science books for children and adults to biographies of people as diverse as Jimi Hendrix and the Ayatollah Khomeini. A past Writer Guest of Honour at Can-Con, he lives in Regina, Saskatchewan, with his wife, Margaret Anne Hodges, P.Eng., their teenaged daughter, Alice, and their black Siberian cat, Shadowpaw.
