Nick Harkaway has been variously described as J.G. Ballard’s geeky younger brother and as William Makepeace Thackeray on acid. He is the author of three novels (Tigerman, Angelmaker, and The Gone-Away World) and a non-fiction book about digitisation, technology and society called The Blind Giant. He has written for the Guardian, Prospect, and recently for the MIT Technology Review SF Annual. He likes skiing, red wine, and de-extinction; he does not like oysters. He lives in London with his wife and two children.
