Short biography
Edward Bulwer changed his surname to Bulwer-Lytton in 1844 at the request of his mother, and was created first Baron Lytton in 1866. He was a popular writer who coined several phrases that would go on to become clichés, including the opening line to his 1830 novel Paul Clifford, "It was a dark and stormy night." His name lives on in the annual Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest, in which the contestants craft bad openings for imaginary novels.
