UAH welcomes Tobias Buckell for a public reading on March 1 in the Wilson Hall Theatre at 6:30 p.m. Buckell is currently teaching EH 412/512: Special Topics in Creative Writing, "Writing the Fantastic" at UAH this spring.

Called “violent, poetic and compulsively readable” by Maclean’s, science fiction author Tobias S. Buckell is a New York Times Bestselling writer born in the Caribbean. He grew up in Grenada and spent time in the British and US Virgin Islands, and the islands he lived on influence much of his work.

His Xenowealth series begins with Crystal Rain. Along with other stand-alone novels and his over seventy stories, his works have been translated into nineteen different languages. He has been nominated for awards like the Hugo, Nebula, Prometheus, and the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Science Fiction Author. His latest novel is The Tangled Lands written with Paolo Bacigalupi, which the Washington Post said is “a rich and haunting novel that explores a world where magic is forbidden.”

He currently lives in Bluffton, Ohio with his wife, twin daughters, and a pair of dogs. He can be found online at
