Welcome to the amazing world of Michael L Williams books.
Over the past 25 years, Michael Williams has written a number of
strange novels, from the early Weasel’s Luck and Galen Beknighted
in the best-selling DRAGONLANCE series to the more recent lyrical
and experimental Arcady, singled out for praise by Locus and
Asimov’s magazines. In Trajan’s Arch, his eleventh novel,
stories fold into stories and a boy grows up with ghostly
mentors, and the recently published Vine mingles Greek tragedy
and urban legend,as a local dramatic production in a small city
goes humorously, then horrifically, awry.
Williams was born in Louisville, Kentucky, and spent much of his
childhood in the south central part of the state, the red-dirt
gothic home of Appalachian foothills and stories of Confederate
guerrillas. Through good luck and a roundabout journey he made
his way through through New England, New York, Wisconsin,
Britain and Ireland, and has ended up less than thirty miles
from where he began. He has a Ph.D. in Humanities, and teaches
at the University of Louisville, where he focuses on the the
Modern Fantastic in fiction and film.
He is married, and has two grown sons.
