Ian R. MacLeod was born on 6 August 1956 in Solihull, in the West Midlands of the United Kingdom, and has spent most of his life there. He took a Law degree, mainly because he liked all the leather-bound books of law reports, drifted into a job in the English Civil Service, and worked there until his thirties, whilst always planning and hoping to be a writer. MacLeod's work has been nominated for the Nebula and Hugo awards, and has won the World Fantasy Award, Locus Award, Sidewise Award, and Asimov's Reader's Poll, and been widely anthologized and translated
