King, William

Tagged: Author

(1959-    ) UK author, primarily of Ties connected to the Warhammer/Warhammer 40,000 universe, beginning with "Green Troops" for Dream Science Fiction in 1988; he is best known for the Warhammer: Gotrek & Felix sequence, where as usual sf tropes vie with fantasy tropes in a variety of worlds rife with Monsters and in a state of constant War. Gotrek & Felix are a pair of heroes, and King takes good advantage of the creative opportunities given him. [JC]
