More Information

This profile moderated by David J. Williams.


Descended from Australian convicts, David J. Williams nonetheless managed to be born in Hertfordshire, England, and subsequently moved to Washington D.C.  Graduating from Yale with a degree in history some time later, he narrowly escaped the life of a graduate student and ended up doing time in Corporate America, which drove him so crazy he started moonlighting on video games and (as he got even crazier) novels.  2010's THE MACHINERY OF LIGHT completes his acclaimed Autumn Rain trilogy.  Learn more about the world of the early 22nd century at
