About the Author
Keith Roberts started his career as an illustrator and cartoon animator. He published his first science fiction short stories in Science Fantasy in 1964, and in 1965 became associate editor of the magazine. His novel Pavane became an instant classic that seems to have found its way into many a modern science fiction and fantasy writer’s pantheon of great works. Roberts currently lives in the south of England, where he still writes and illustrates. Interestingly, most of his best fiction is set there.
