About J.R.H. Lawless
Born in Newfoundland, Canada, raised in France, and come into his own as an author while living near an 12th century abbey in rural England, J.R.H. Lawless is an attorney by day and a speculative fiction author by night, penning novels and short stories, mostly in adult Science Fiction which has been a lifelong passion for him.
He draws on his education and professional experience, including at Sciences Po Paris and the French National Assembly, to craft worlds that look ahead to the political, social, and economic challenges that face us all, both in the near and the more distant future, as humanity moves out into the Solar System and beyond. He also draws on his deep-grained love of Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams to make sure his worlds are always full of tongue-in-cheek humour, and never take themselves quite too seriously, even when the subject matter itself could not be more serious.
Now living and writing in Atlantic Canada with his beautiful family, Lawless looks forward to sharing his worlds with as many people as possible.

Ramsey (Beyond the Sentinel Stars)! With introduction from sci-fi legend Kenneth Tam!
"This is a highly entertaining anthology. The editors asked for stories faithful to pulp fiction but with modern twists that subvert, or perhaps I should say “transcend” its limitations. The writers delivered. For them as likes old-fashioned SF it is a wonderful bunch of stories. And for them as wants to avoid the same-old, same-old, there is an abundance of original touches. Best of both worlds if you ask me. I had gleeful good fun reading this. Maybe my tastes are bizarre to the point of being uniquely unique, but I doubt it. Strongly suspect many people are going to love this anthology as much as I do, which is my subtle way of saying I recommend this book!" -- Amazing Stories
