   Writers: William Meikle (1958 - , Scotland)  
  About the author  

William Meikle is a technical author by day and a fiction author by night. He sold more than 150 short stories in SF, fantasy, and horror magazines and e-zines.

William has written as long as he can remember. Back in his teen-age years it was song lyrics more than fiction. He can't remember when he got hooked on genre fiction. About the age of 12, William discovered Tolkien, then Michael Moorcock.

As a youth, he read a lot of "Pulp" fiction -- Edgar Rice Burroughs, H.P. Lovecraft, H. Rider Haggard, and Sax Rohmer. The first true science fiction he remembers reading was Arthur C. Clarke's novelization of 2001 A Space Odessey, and in his early teens he read everything else Clarke wrote, and everything by Asimov. Then William discovered, about the age of 15, the so-called New-Wave writers. Since then he's followed the careers of Ursula Le Guin, Harlan Ellison and, until he passed on, Roger Zelazny.
