E.J. Swift is an English author of SF and fantasy. Her first novel, Osiris, was published in May 2012. When not writing, she can usually be found attending to the whims of her two delinquent cats, attempting to grow things in a London garden, or practising aerial circus skills. Opulent ecocritic.
"I wouldn’t define myself particularly as a writer of eco-tastrophy, but considering the evidence, it does seem inevitable that I would end up being influenced by environmental issues.... I think science-fiction certainly has a role to play in recognizing the state of the planet — but as with any topic, it’s how it says it that’s important. After all, it’s pointless depicting mass flooding and desertification if there’s no story."
