About the Author

Debut author Tracy Townsend holds a master's degree in writing and rhetoric from DePaul University and a bachelor's degree in creative writing from DePauw University, a source of regular consternation when proofreading her credentials. She is chair of the English Department at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy, an elite public boarding school, where she teaches creative writing and science fiction and fantasy literature. She has been a martial arts instructor, a stage combat and accent coach, and a short-order cook for houses full of tired gamers. Now she lives in Bolingbrook, Illinois with two bumptious hounds, two remarkable children, and one very patient husband. Her short story "Late Arrivals" was published by Luna Station Quarterly in March 2016.

Reviews

"[An] intriguing debut of nearly flawless writing. . . . A gritty series opener."

--Publishers Weekly

"The Nine is a tense, fast-moving and twisty caper, with divided loyalties, creepy monsters, and grand mysteries. More please!"

--Max Gladstone, author of the Hugo Award-nominated Craft Sequence series

"An inventive alloy of low-fantasy grit and saucy gaslamp caper, by turns both uplifting and brutal--I dug the world, I loved the characters, and I definitely want to know what happens next."

--Curtis C. Chen, author of the Locus Award finalist Waypoint Kangaroo

"George R. R. Martin and China Miรฉville have nothing on the audacious, intricate world-building, gritty politics, and compelling characters in this excellent debut."

--Sam J. Miller, Nebula Award-nominated author of The Art of Starving
