Born in Zurich, Paul Witcover is a writer and critic. A finalist for the World Fantasy, Nebula, Shirley Jackson and James Tiptree awards, his work includes the critically acclaimed novels WAKING BEAUTY and TUMBLING AFTER, and a collection of short stories, EVERLAND AND OTHER STORIES. His short fiction has also appeared in anthologies and magazines such as Asimov’s and, with Elizabeth Hand, he created the comic book series Anima. He has also been curator of the New York Review of Science Fiction reading series. Paul lives in New York City and is currently working on a sequel to THE EMPEROR OF ALL THINGS. In a reimagined 18th-century, England is at war with France and the race is on to track down a sinister time-piece – a pocket watch with the power to alter the course of history…and perhaps time itself – a thrilling historical fantasy that should strike a chord with readers of Susanna Clarke, Phillip Pullman and Neal Stephenson.
