Sarah Ash

I've loved mythology and folklore since I was a child. I then had years of fun working as a children's librarian, encouraging children to enjoy reading. My fantasy novels include The Tears of Artamon sequence which was influenced by the music and legends of Eastern Europe. Oh - and I'm also a complete manga-head and regularly review anime and manga for AUKN.

His next book, Hive Monkey, is due from Solaris Books in January 2014.

The Waters of Destiny, by Ian in collaboration with Andy West, released just recently as 3 ebooks (the first one free) from www.watersofdestiny.com, tells how an Arab doctor of genius could realistically in the 12th century have discovered the true cause of the Black Death and stored this with horrifying consequences in the present day.
