Stephen Hunt writes fantasy and science fiction books (with a little steampunk on the side), crime, mystery and thriller novels, as well as horror books (the latter for teens and young adults).

Whatever genre he writes in, Stephen's trademark style is page-turning thrillers, action fiction, high imagination and dollops of sly humour - or possibly humor if you're from North America.

His scifi and crime books are published in English around the world by Gollancz/Hachette, HarperCollins, Tor Macmillan and Green Nebula. Foreign language editions of his novels are available from various publishers in China, Russia, Japan, Germany, Spain, Portugal, France and Brazil. Ebooks are available from Kindle as well as other online retailers, with a selection on Kindle Prime.

His current series are:

The Sliding Void books: an exciting space opera collection (currently a trilogy of novellas) featuring a crew of free traders and galactic misfits on board the starship Gravity Rose. If aliens, robots, androids, cyborgs, scifi romance and high adventure are your thing, this is the megapack for you.

The Vigil novels: a still-expanding boxset of horror thrillers suitable for a teen and young adult audience. When Eleanor Lythe is given as a sacrifice to semi-immortal vampires, the Vigil - the covert branch of the U.S. Secret Service formed to fight the forces of the supernatural - is on hand to cure her and protect her. But save her for just what sort of life?

The Agatha Witchley Mysteries: a spy-fi series of crime and action thriller books. These works feature the dotty and possibly insane retired super spy Agatha Witchley, who thinks she can save the world by communicating with the dead. When a dead billionaire turns up, she gets the chance to either prove her point or be sectioned for life.

The Far-called books: a daring fantasy and scifi series set on the giant world of Pellas. When Carter and his young friends are kidnapped by lizard-like slavers, both those who are taken and those who were left behind discover how far they have to go to stay alive.

The Jackelian books: a fantasy and science fiction series set in a dystopian future where humanity has degraded to a Victorian level of technology. This series - seven books - put space boosters under the steampunk genre. What is left of Britain, the Kingdom of Jackelia, is beset by enemies. Can Molly and the infamous u-boat pirate Commodore Black and their friends survive the intrigues and wars that result?

Stephen maintains his own web site over at www.StephenHunt.net and when he is not writing, he can be found indulging in such interests as cooking, gardening, collecting comic-books, and building his collection of science fiction and fantasy books.
