Stephen Palmer was born in 1962 and brought up in Wales and Shropshire.
He was educated in Shrewsbury and at the University of London, where
he read physics and computer science (giving up the latter because it
was so boring). There followed the usual succession of menial jobs:
science technician, physics technician. He presently works in a bookshop.
He wrote his first serious novel in 1986, and, after writing a series
of not very good books, managed to produce the novel that eventually
metamorphosed into Memory Seed. This, his debut, was published
by Orbit (Little Brown Company) in 1996. A second novel, Glass,
was published by Orbit in June 1997. His latest novels, Muezzinland,
Flowercrash, and Hallucinating, are published by Cosmos
He is very fond of cats, while his favourite plant is the papyrus.
He is married with no children and lives in Devon.
