About Ed Greenwood

Ed Greenwood

Ed Greenwood

Ed Greenwood grew up in Don Mills, now part of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where he lives in a book-crammed farmhouse in the countryside halfway between Kingston and Toronto, a Paul Bunyan’s hammer throw north of the shores of Lake Ontario.

A lifelong reader, library guy, writer, game designer, and book collector, Ed sold his first fiction at age six, and in the forty-some years since has published more than 180 books that have sold millions of copies worldwide in over two dozen languages. The most recent of these include the bestselling novels Elminster Must Die! and Bury Elminster Deep from Wizards of the Coast. With Gabrielle Harbowy, Ed recently co-edited the critically acclaimed anthology When The Hero Comes Home, published by Dragon Moon Press.

For the Digital Science Fiction Anthologies, Ed has written “Biting A Dead Man’s Hand”, published in First Contact, the first Digital Science Fiction anthology.

Ed holds a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Journalism from Ryerson University, and has lectured at more than a dozen universities on three continents. He has won several dozen writing and gaming awards, was elected to the Academy of Adventure Gaming Art & Design Hall of Fame in 2003, and has been a judge for the World Fantasy Awards and the Sunburst Awards, among others.

When not writing, he walks the head of the household (a small but imperious cat), works in the Port Hope Public Library and is the chair of the library board of another library system, and reads books. His house is literally sagging under the weight of over 80,000 books.

One Comment:

  1. It’s probably a little narrow to title this entry “Science Fiction Author – Ed Greenwood”. With over 180 published books Ed is clearly much more than a science fiction author. But, we’re all about science fiction here and no magic is allowed, so for us Ed is a science fiction author. Well, maybe a little magic… — Michael
