BIO: Jay Kristoff writes sci-fi/fantasy (specifically steampunk) and is represented by Matt Bialer at Sanford J. Greenburger & Associates. He grew up in the most isolated capital city on earth and fled at his earliest convenience. Being the holder of an Arts degree, he has no education to speak of. His debut novel, STORMDANCER, sold at auction in January 2011 – Jay expects the hangover to wear off some time in August. Until then, please be vewy, vewy quiet. He blogs utter nonesense here, tweets meaningless twaddle here, haunts the Book of Faces here and reads good here.

DEBUT: STORMDANCER (St Martin's Press/Tor UK Spring 2012)

The Shima Isles are verging on the brink of environmental collapse; decimated by clockwork mechanization and toxic pollution. Sixteen-year-old Yukiko is the daughter of the Shogun's Hunt Master, gifted with the ability to speak telepathically to animals, but forced to hide her talent for fear of the murderous Lotus Guild and their campaign against "impurity". Befriending the last griffin alive on the islands, Yukiko pits herself against the Shogun and the Guild in the hope of seeing her homeland saved, her family freed and the crippled griffin fly again.
