About the Author

CHARLES STROSS was born in Leeds, England, in 1964. He is the author of the Merchant Prince series, including The Trade of Queens, The Revolution Business and The Merchant's War, and has worked as a pharmacist, software engineer, and freelance journalist, but now writes full-time. To date, Stross has won two Hugo Awards and been nominated twelve times. He has also won the Locus Award for Best Novel, the Locus Award for Best Novella, and has been shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke and Nebula Awards. In addition, his fiction has been translated into around a dozen languages. Stross lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, with his wife Feorag, a couple of cats, several thousand books, and an ever-changing herd of obsolescent computers.


"Great Fun!" --Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize-winning economist on The Merchant Princes series

"Stross brings to fantasy the same kind of sly humor and clear-eyed extrapolation that he previously brough to space opera and horror...presented with great wit and high suspense." --San Francisco Chronicle on The Merchant Princes series

"A marvelous romp through this world and others, told by a master of the imaginative thrill-ride." --Karl Schroeder on The Merchant Princes series

"A fantastically thrilling series." --Booklist on The Merchant Princes series

"Totally off the wall and delightful." --Anne McCaffrey on The Merchant Princes series

"An alternate world that is fascinating and's simply a great adventure, full of danger, of plots within plots, of forbidden love and political murder." --Orson Scott Card on The Merchant Princes series

"Stross gives us an escape fanatsy that is most seductive, indeed." on The Merchant Princes series

"Inventive, irreverent, and alternate world where business is simultaneously low and high tech, and where romance, murder, marriage, and business are hopelessly intertwined--and deadly." --L. E. Modesitt, Jr. on The Merchant Princes series

"Fans of the author's previous work will recognize his trademark skill at world building--you can almost see the filth on the streets of New England, feel the closeted oppression of the Clan hierarchy, and experience Miriam's terror at the horrifying circumstances she finds herself in." --SciFiNow on The Merchant Princes series

"A rollicking, pacy read and delivers on the fun." --Interzone
