ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Raven Dane is an award-winning fantasy author based in the UK. Her published works include the highly acclaimed Legacy of the Dark Kind series of dark fantasy/sci-fi vampire crossover novels (Blood Tears, Blood Lament and Blood Alliance).
However, Raven’s skills in fiction don’t end there. Her comedy fantasy The Unwise Woman of Fuggis Mire – a scurrilous spoof of high fantasy clichés – was met with great enthusiasm by the reading public. In more recent years Raven has met with critical acclaim for her steampunk/occult adventures Cyrus Darian and the Technomicron and Cyrus Darian and the Ghastly Horde.
Cyrus Darian and the Technomicron was the winner of the best novel award at the inaugural Victorian Steampunk Society awards in 2012.
Raven also has many short stories published in anthologies including in Full Fathom Forty, a celebration of 40 years of the British Fantasy Society, and the first annual of ghost stories from Spectral Press, called The 13 Ghosts of Christmas.
Further works include poetry published in an anthology of pagan verse.
