Richard Harland Book and Novel

Richard Harland - Author


Richard Harland was born in the north of England in the middle of the coldest winter ever recorded. He moved to Australia on a university scholarship, fell in love with it and stayed. Richard loves writing fantasy and science fiction for adults and children, and has won five Aurealis awards for his novels, the Wolf Kingdom quartet and The Black Crusade, and for his short stories.

Richard says, ‘Worldshaker came from a dream in which I fell through a slot in the ground, down past endless floors of machinery, metal pipes and impossibly cramped living spaces. It took me fifteen years to develop all the details of the world inspired by that glimpse. By the time I finally sat down to write, the story was just busting to come out.’

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
