Robert V.S. Redick is the author of the epic fantasy series The Chathrand Voyage Quartet. The four books received great critical and popular acclaim, with Locus Magazine calling the Quartet “one of the most distinctive and appealing epic fantasies of the last decade”, and Paul di Filippo "a Kidnapped or Treasure Island for contemporary times.” A former international development worker, Redick holds an MFA from the Warren Wilson Program for Writers, and an MA in Tropical Conservation & Development from the University of Florida.
Redick divides his time between Bogor, Indonesia, and Western Massachusetts. He has just finished a draft of his new fantasy novel, Master Assassins, Book One of The Sacred Fire trilogy.
