Administrative/Biographical Note

Lawrence Watt-Evans is a writer of fantasy, science fiction, horror, and non-fiction. To date he has published more than four dozen novels, over one hundred short stories and articles, and a handful of comic books and volumes of non-fiction. He began writing as a young child, selling a short story and several articles under his name. His first novel, The Lure of the Basilisk, was published in 1980 (by Del Rey Books) under the name Lawrence Watt-Evans. He hyphenated his middle and last name to distinguish himself from a non-fiction writer also named Lawrence Evans. Evans has published additional work, primarily that of science fiction, under the pseudonym Nathan Archer.

Evans’ work has received critical acclaim. His novels have been translated into seven different languages and have been enjoyed worldwide. In 1987 he was nominated for a Nebula award and in 1988 he received the Hugo award for best short story from the World Science Fiction Society for his work “Why I Left Harry’s All-Night Hamburgers.” He is best known for his Ethshar fantasy series.

Throughout his career, Evans has been involved in various writing and science fiction associations. He was a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America from 1982 to 2006, he served as Eastern Regional Director and treasurer of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and he was president of Horror Writers Association from 1994 to 1996. Aside from writing, Evans is also part owner of a small chain of comic book shops called Beyond Comics and owner of a small publishing company known as Misenchanted Press. He was previously co-owner of horror magazine Deathrealm before it was discontinued in 1997.
