Paul Cornell

I'm a writer of SF and fantasy in prose, comics and television, one of only two people to be Hugo Award-nominated for all three media. I wrote three episodes of Doctor Who for the BBC, Batman & Robin and Superman in Action Comics for DC, and my continuing mature readers series at Vertigo is Saucer Country. My first urban fantasy novel, London Falling, about a modern undercover police unit in London accidentally becoming able to see dark magic and monsters, is out from Tor in the UK in December, and in the US in April 2013. I live near London, and my other interests include cricket, all things Fortean, and my newborn son Thomas. His interests include tummy rubs and poo.
