GREGORY FROST's fantasy duology SHADOWBRIDGE and LORD TOPHET (Del Rey) is "a creation unique, I believe, in fantasy" according to reviewer Dave Truesdale. The American Library Association agrees, naming the duology one of its top fantasy novels of the year. Previously, Publishers Weekly (in a starred review) called his short story collection Attack of the Jazz Giants & Other Stories, (Golden Gryphon Press, 2005) “one of the best fantasy collections." AOTJG includes both the much-award-nominated “Madonna of the Maquiladora,” and the first Shadowbridge story, “How Meersh the Bedeviler Lost His Toes.”
Mr. Frost has been a finalist for the James Tiptree Award, Nebula Award, Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award, World Fantasy Award, Hugo Award, and even the International Horror Guild Award.
His previous novel, FITCHER’S BRIDES, (Tor Books), was a recasting of the fairy tale of Bluebeard upon the landscape of 19th century New York. Gavin Grant, in Bookpage, said of it: “The novel is suspenseful, spooky and hard to put down… Frost’s finely detailed chiller will stay with the reader for a long time.” Fitcher's Brides was a World Fantasy Award Finalist for Best Novel. Recent stories appear in the anthology Poe, edited by Ellen Datlow, and in The Beastly Bride, a YA anthology edited by Ms.Datlow and Terri Windling.
Mr. Frost has been writing and publishing fiction for twenty-five years. His first novel, LYREC, reached best-seller status on the B. Dalton's sf/fantasy list. He was the lead-off instructor for the Clarion Writing Workshop program in 2007 at UC San Diego, and is the current Fiction Writing Workshop Director at Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, PA.
