About the Author

Allen Stroud is a lecturer at Coventry University, where he teaches BA (Hons) Media. Stroud completed a Ph.D. at the University of Winchester entitled An Investigation and Application of Writing Structures and World Development Techniques in Science Fiction and Fantasy. This thesis covered his work on the computer games, Elite Dangerous (2014) and Chaos Reborn (2016). For Elite Dangerous, Stroud wrote six guidebooks that inform the game’s fictional narrative and also served to help other writers with their novelisations set in the game world. He has since worked on Phoenix Point (2019) and Baldur’s Gate 3 by Larian Studios, due for release in 2021.

Stroud was a founding host of Lave Radio, an Elite Dangerous fan podcast that started in February 2013 and runs the annual convention Lavecon. His novel set in the Elite Dangerous game world, called Elite: Lave Revolution was successfully funded on Kickstarter and published in late 2014, with a second edition published in 2015. Stroud then supported Spidermind Games in developing the Elite Dangerous Roleplaying Game and worked for Make Believe Games on Revolutionaries and I Am Zombie.

Stroud was the 2017 and 2018 chair of Fantasycon, the annual convention of the British Fantasy Society, which hosts the British Fantasy Awards. In June 2019, he became Chair of the British Science Fiction Association, taking over from Donna Bond. Stroud continues to write academic papers, reviews, articles and fiction in science fiction, fantasy and horror. He lives in a messy house with three cats and his partner, Karen.


Praise for Book 1, FEARLESS:

“Fast-paced, gripping hard SF with death in hard vacuum waiting at every turn.” — Arthur C. Clarke Award winner Adrian Tchaikovsky

"Gripping, intense, military SF. Stunning and urgent." — Anna Smith Spark, author of the Empires of Dust series

“Space battles, sabotage, and treachery envelop a gripping whodunit, as Captain Ellisa Shann strives to identify a murderer among her crew and save her ship, the Khidr, from imminent destruction. Fearless is a fabulous read from a writer who knows how to deliver.” — Ian Whates, Author of Dark Angels Rising and 2019 Winner of the Karl Edward Wagner Award

“Fearless is a brilliant achievement, and one of the best science-fiction novels I have read in a very long time." — The Sci-fi and Fantasy Reviewer

"The depths of outer space test the strength of a dynamic heroine’s inner resolve in Stroud’s smart, introspective space opera set in the year 2118. [...] With an attention to detail that will please hard science fiction fans, Stroud raises fascinating questions about the politics of space exploration. This is one to be savored." — Publishers Weekly Starred Review

Rigorous hard SF with a powerful but flawed protagonist and a fascinating historical background, 'Fearless' is a treat for just about any Analog reader." — Analog Science Fiction & Fact

“A wonderful, modern, inclusive and clever science fiction that deserves to be a part of anyone’s collection.” — SF Book

"[Allen Stroud] also brings a Clarkian feel that grounds the story in the best tradition of science fiction. He keeps the action going, and does a fine job of showing the difficulties of conflict in space. Highly Recommended.” — Amazing Stories (Science Fiction to look for in September 2020)

I'm a senior lecturer at Coventry University, England.

I taught writing for eighteen years, specialising in scriptwriting, fantasy and science fiction. In that time I've taught some great aspiring young writers and learned as much from them as they have from me.

I completed my Ph. D. in Creative Writing at the University of Winchester in 2017. My specialism was in "writing techniques and world development structures in Science Fiction and Fantasy".

I help my sister edit my late father's short story collections about 'Ozzy the Pig', which you can also find on Amazon.

'A Bag of Bedtime Tales' is my first venture into e-book publishing. Since publishing this in 2011, I've added three fantasy novels, 'The Sword of Wisimir' and 'The Dragon of Wisimir' in 2012, 'Lord of Wisimir' in 2013. In 2014, I published 'Elite: Lave Revolution'. After a few months of this being withdrawn, the second edition arrived on Amazon in June 2015.

In 2016, I published Dreams of Chaos and The Loremaster's Guide. Both part of my work with Julian Gollop and Snapshot Games. I also had a story featured in Newcon Press' Crises and Conflicts, which is being republished by Baen Books in 2017.

My new novel in 2017 is 'The Forever Man'.

In 2017-2019 I worked on the computer game Phoenix Point, which was released in December 2019. I have a new novel - Fearless, published by Flame Tree Press. I also have short stories in the Forgotten Sidekicks and Lost Gods anthologies being published in 2020 and 2021 by Grimbold Books.

I regularly write about and review Science Fiction and Fantasy for, the British Fantasy Society and a selection of other websites.
