Blog: End of the Pier Show
Cromercrox has written several books including The Science of Middle-earth, Jacob’s Ladder, In Search Of Deep Time, By The Sea (a novel) and (with stellar dino-artist Luis V. Rey) A Field Guide to Dinosaurs; and edited the reprint collections Shaking the Tree and Rise of the Dragon, and the SF collection Futures From Nature. By day he is a Senior Editor with the science magazine Nature where he covers evolutionary developmental biology, palaeontology and Aliens from Outer Space, and runs the award-winning SF series Futures.
By night, the writing never stops. As well as being a featured columnist for BBC Focus magazine, he is working on several book projects. These include a popular-science book about human evolution (this week’s working title – The Myth Of Progression: On The Tangled Bank of Darwin’s Imagination); a projected new edition of his 1996 graduate-level text Before The Backbone; a palaeo book for kids and maybe a graphic novel (both with Luis V. Rey); a massive SF bonkbuster; and a kids’ book called Defiant The Guinea-Pig: Firefighter! (with his younger daughter, Crox Minima). An active Tolkienist, he is the Editor of Mallorn, the Journal of the Tolkien Society.
He lives in Cromer, Norfolk, England, with his family and numerous pets, and enjoys playing blues organ, beachcombing, supporting Norwich City FC, and falling asleep.
He is represented by Jill Grinberg Literary Management LLC, and that’s where all inquiries about sole-author book projects should be directed in the first instance.
