Go Home GoH - Ken MacLeod
Ken MacLeod

The committee is delighted to announce that the Guest of Honour at Satellite 1 will be the well-known Scottish SF author Ken MacLeod.

Born in the mid-1950s in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Ken MacLeod studied zoology at Glasgow University before moving to London to undertake a Masters degree (by research) at Brunel in the field of biomechanics. He then worked as a computer analyst/programmer before becoming a full-time writer.

Ken MacLeod is one of a group of UK writers specialising in “hard SF”. A particular feature of his work is the combination of the exploration of space with the exploration of socio-political ideas. His strong background in science is evident in his creation of believable alien races and future technologies. His work has attracted a BSFA Best Novel Award (The Sky Road, 1999) and two Prometheus Awards (The Star Fraction, 1996, and The Stone Canal, 1998). He has also received several nominations for Arthur C Clarke, Hugo and Nebula Awards.

Ken MacLeod is a well-known attendee at British SF conventions. He now lives in West Lothian with his wife and three children.
