“Stories are really important to people and can really change the way they understand and even live their lives. As such, I don't agree much with people who say, 'Calm down, it's just a story.” – Tim Pratt
Pratt, who was born in North Carolina on this date in 1976, is Senior Editor at Locus Magazine when he isn’t busy writing science fiction and fantasy novels and short stories or crafting yet another award-winning poem. A graduate of Appalachian State University, where he majored in English and started his writing career, he now makes his home in California.
Pratt’s work has appeared in journals like Asimov’s Science Fiction and Strange Horizons, and America’s Best Short Stories. He has had his stories and poems published in many Year's Best collections, winning a Hugo Award, a Rhysling Award, and an Emperor Norton Award, as well as numerous nominations in many other Sci-Fi and Fantasy categories along the way. His most popular novel is a tale of magic and mystery, Heirs of Grace, set in his native North Carolina.
Pratt said he enjoys travel and adventure and recommends it to all. “Life is full of borders,” he said. “Some of them, once crossed, can never be crossed again in the other direction. But there are new countries to discover across every one.”
