I'm John Meaney, science fiction and fantasy author. I also write near-future thrillers under the pseudonym of Thomas Blackthorne. Welcome to my virtual home! Pull up a chair, and let's catch up on what's happening.
LATEST NEWS: TRANSMISSION, volume 2 of my latest space opera trilogy, is currently out... and the conclusion, RESONANCE, is coming along nicely, with superb cover art by the legendary Jim Burns.

Website news: The new-ish 'art' page is for giggles, nothing more.
Buyer beware: For readers of my Tristopolis books, please note that Black Blood and Dark Blood are the same book, released under different titles by different publishers, either side of the Atlantic. (If you buy books online, it's not obvious when you're buying a foreign import, which might be a different edition of something you already own.)
On the personal front, I'm living in a Welsh valley these days, with actual fresh air and forest nearby. And, with luck, producing many more books...
