Geoff Ryman Book and Novel

Geoff Ryman - Author

Geoff Ryman was born in Canada, to a journalist mother and a father in science. It was through his mother that Geoff, when he was eight, had a short story published in the local paper. But it was his father who inspired Geoff with stories of lasers – it was a fascination which was to last. His father was also an artist, a talent which has been passed down to his son.

Geoff’s apprenticeship to writing was long and hard. It was not the writing that was the problem but the imagination. His family moved to Los Angeles in 1963 and perhaps influenced by this city, he wanted to become an actor. In the mid 1970s when he had moved to London he realised that he really wanted to take his writing seriously, and his first short story was sold to New Worlds Ten in 1976.

Geoff Ryman is the award winning author of 253 the world’s first internet novel, and the cult classics WAS and LUST.

If you like Geoff Ryman you might also like to read books by Vikram Chandra, Amitav Ghosh and Tash Aw.

The King's Last Song by Geoff Ryman
The King's Last Song

This book is amazing, not like any other I have read. It deals with an archaeological discovery in Cambodia, where an extraordinary book is found, sort of the equivalent of the diary of Alfred the Great being found in England....

Geoff Rymanâs writing is at all times highly crafted and deeply evocative, as he skilfully explores the ancient story of Cambodiaâs greatest king, and the heart-rending legacy of Cambodiaâs recent history. As brilliant, innovative and captivating as youâd expect.
