T. A. Pratt

Pseudonym for Tim Pratt.

Tim Pratt lives in Oakland, California, with his wife, Heather Shaw. His fiction and poetry have appeared in The Best American Short Stories: 2005, The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, Strange Horizons, Realms of Fantasy, Asimov's, Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, and Year's Best Fantasy, among many others (for complete details, see his bibliography).

His first novel, The Strange Adventures of Rangergirl, was published by Bantam Spectra in late 2005. It was nominated for the Mythopoeic Award, and won a Romantic Times Critic's Choice Award for best Modern Fantasy.

His first collection Little Gods was published by Prime Books in November of 2003. His second collection, Hart & Boot & Other Stories, appeared in January 2007.

In October 2007 Blood Engines will be published, the first in a new urban fantasy series featuring ass-kicking sorceress Marla Mason. A second book in the series, Poison Sleep, will appear sometime afterward.

Some of his poems have been collected in If There Were Wolves, including "Soul Searching," winner of the 2005 Rhysling Award for best long poem.

He also creates chapbooks, some of which are available for purchase at, and co-edits a 'zine with Heather Shaw, Flytrap, which fulfills his occasional urge to read slush and his more frequent desire to do layout.

By day he works as senior editor and book reviewer at Locus magazine, where, among other things, he write the obituaries.

His short fiction has been nominated for the Nebula Award, one of SF/Fantasy's highest honors, and in 2004 he was a finalist for the Campbell Award for Best New Writer.
