John Meaney writes thrillers, science fiction and fantasy. He has won the IPPY Award and been a finalist for the BSFA Award multiple times. He has several series in progress.

His contemporary cyber thriller series featuring Case, a spec-ops cyber specialist who hears voices in his head, begins with Destructor Function. On The Brink is the first in a new series set in the 1950s and featuring schoolteacher-turned-spy Paul Reynolds.

Near-future thrillers feature Josh Cumberland, an ex-special forces cyber specialist driven by family tragedy, in a near-future Britain wracked by climate change, a legalized knife culture and political corruption.

The Donal Riordan novels feature a detective in the city of Tristopolis, where the sky is perpetually dark purple, and the bones of the dead are fuel for the reactor piles.

The seven Pilots novels include the Ragnarok trilogy, which begins with alien influences on humans at the dawn of the Viking era, covers the birth of the digital age at Bletchley Park, and concludes with a galaxy-spanning conflict, a million years from now.

Outside the world of writing, Meaney is a lifelong martial artist, a computer consultant with degrees from the Open University and Oxford, and a trained hypnotist.
