About the Author

Lord Dunsany (1878-1957) was a British writer. Born in London, Dunsany--whose name was Edward Plunkett--was raised in a prominent Anglo-Irish family alongside a younger brother. When his father died in 1899, he received the title of Lord Dunsany and moved to Dunsany Castle in 1901. He met Lady Beatrice Child Villiers two years later, and they married in 1904. They were central figures in the social spheres of Dublin and London, donating generously to the Abbey Theatre while forging friendships with W. B. Yeats, Lady Gregory, and George William Russell. In 1905, he published The Gods of Pegāna, a collection of fantasy stories, launching his career as a leading figure in the Irish Literary Revival. Subsequent collections, such as A Dreamer's Tales (1910) and The Book of Wonder (1912), would influence generations of writers, including J. R. R. Tolkein, Ursula K. Le Guin, and H. P. Lovecraft. In addition to his pioneering work in the fantasy and science fiction genres, Dunsany was a successful dramatist and poet. His works have been staged and adapted for theatre, radio, television, and cinema, and he was unsuccessfully nominated for the 1950 Nobel Prize in Literature.

Historically, Chirag has been both a writer for hire, and one of opportunity. A student of the craft, more than any particular genre or form. Chirag has experience in writing, web design, marketing, journalism, teaching, project management, and various other fields, my writing covers an broad range of well-researched, carefully thought-through content. He once had quite a bohemian vision of writing, but ended up writing news, features, travelogues, business and academic articles, and really rather a lot of web content. There's no writing challenge like finding an interesting and engaging way to describe chamfered steel plates... He also records audiobooks - you can buy them from any major audiobook retailer by searching for Chirag Patel or for Lamplight. Check out lamplight.design for information on audiobooks he's narrated, from poetry and mysticism to detective thrillers and dark fantasy.
