Geoff Ryman's star is very deservedly on the ascendant right now. A Canadian by birth, Ryman has been based in the UK for some time now and though he has produced a considerable and impressive body of work over the years, it is only relatively recently that he has begun to be aggressively marketed to a wider readership. His recent novel Air has been shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke award (which Ryman won back in 1990) and now HarperCollins has issued his latest novel The King's Last Song and they describe it as "...a beautifully evocative and captivating tale which explores the legacy of war and the clash between East and West. A must for fans of Amitav Ghosh."
