#20 Davis Bunn/Thomas Locke
Under two different pen names, Davis Bunn A.K.A. Thomas Locke is an award-winning, best-selling author who is deft at multiple genres, including romance, historicals, suspense, and science fiction. He serves as writer-in-residence at Regent’s Park College, the University of Oxford, in the United Kingdom. His speculative fiction includes the fantasy series Legends of the Realm, the SF series Recruits, and the mind-bending Fault Lines series.
“My first passions as a young reader were fantasy and science fiction. When I started writing, my first mentor was Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Over the past few years I’ve become increasingly frustrated by the constant negative directions that both fantasy and science fiction are taking. Dystopian fiction, hopelessness, the undead—do they all have to be tainted by this same darkness? Was there no place anymore for the same sort of heroic adventure that so thrilled me as a youngster? Finally I decided that it was time to stop complaining and do something different.”
