    David Wingrove

    David Wingrove (born September 1954 in North Battersea, London) is a British science fiction writer. He is well-known as the author of the Chung Kuo novels (eight in total). He is also the co-author (with Rand and Robyn Miller) of the three Myst novels.

    Wingrove worked in the banking industry for 7 years until he became fed up with it. He then attended the University of Kent, Canterbury, where he read English and American Literature.

    He is married and, with his wife Susan, has four daughters Jessica, Amy, Georgia, and Francesca.

    Between 1972 and 1982 he wrote over 300 unpublished short stories and 15 novels.

    He started work on a new fictional project called A Perfect Art. Between 1984 and 1988, when it was first submitted, the title was changed twice, becoming first A Spring Day at the Edge of the World and then finally Chung Kuo, under which title it was sold to 18 publishers throughout the world.

    A prequel to the Chung Kuo series, called When China Comes, was released in May 2009 by Quercus Publishing, which also re-released the entire series: The series has been recast in nineteen volumes, including a new prequel and a new final volume. After a series launch in May 2009, Quercus will embark on an ambitious publishing programme that will see all nineteen volumes available by the end of 2012.

    He has plans for a further a novels, a a first person character novel called Dawn in Stone City and three very different novels: The Beast with Two Backs, Heavens Bright Sun, and Roads to Moscow.
