Terry Dowling is one of Australia's most respected and internationally acclaimed writers of horror, dark fantasy and science fiction, and author of the multi-award-winning Tom Rynosseros saga. He has been called "Australia's finest writer of horror" by Locus magazine and its "premier writer of dark fantasy" by All Hallows. Locus also calls him a "highly original" writer and regards his work as placing him "among the masters of the field." The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror series featured more horror stories by Terry in its 21 year run than by any other writer.
Terry's award-winning horror collections are Basic Black: Tales of Appropriate Fear (International Horror Guild Award winner for Best Collection 2007), regarded as "one of the best recent collections of contemporary horror" by the American Library Association, Aurealis Award-winning An Intimate Knowledge of the Night, and the World Fantasy Award nominated Blackwater Days. His most recent books are Amberjack: Tales of Fear & Wonder and his debut novel, Clowns at Midnight, which London's Guardian called "an exceptional work that bears comparison to John Fowles's The Magus."
Terry has written three computer adventures (Schizm: Mysterious Journey, Schizm II: Chameleon and Sentinel: Descendants in Time), and co-edited The Essential Ellison and The Jack Vance Treasury among many other titles.
