Great Science-Fiction & Fantasy Works

Science-fiction & fantasy literature: a critical list with discussions.

Welcome to the Great Science-Fiction & Fantasy Works web site!

You have apparently come to this page from a link on a search engine or another site. If this is your first visit here, I much recommend that you take a few minutes to look over the introductory material accessible via the red “Introductory” navigation block just below the pictures. An understanding of the purposes and principles of organization of this site will, I hope and believe, much augment your experience here, for this page and in general. You can simply click this link to get at the site front page, which, unsurprisingly, is the best place to start. Thank you for visiting.
Search, or just roll your cursor over the colored boxes farther below.

Richard Grant

Quick page jumps:

Standard Disclaimer:

This is a brief discussion of Richard Grant and, of course, of some speculative-fiction books by Grant.

This discussion and list does not necessarily include every book by Grant: it includes only those books that I both know and like. Just as with the author list itself, omission of a particular item may mean I didn’t think highly enough of the omitted item, or it may simply mean that I have not yet sufficient familiarity with it. (In a very few cases, I have listed some books merely on the strength of my opinion of the author: all such books are clearly marked below, as throughout these lists, with a hash mark (#) before the title so you know what’s what.)

I don’t pretend that this discussion is a deep analysis. My intent is no more than to give you a rough idea of what kinds of tales Grant tells, how those tales are usually told, and what makes them and Grant worthy; in sum, to help you rank Richard Grant (and the works by Grant listed here) on your personal literary “to do” list.

A Few Words About Richard Grant

Do not confuse this Richard Grant, the author from Maine, with the other writer of the same name, a freelance British travel writer based in Mississippi.

Regrettably, I have not yet had an opportunity to write an essay on this author, but the “Other Resources” section below will lead you to some information about the “Notable Books” listed farther down this page.

Other Richard Grant Resources

Richard Grant Resources on the Web

The dearth of material about this Richard Grant (this Richard Grant, not the numerous others who turn up in searches, even with “author” or “writer“ included in the search term) is little short of astonishing: even a glance at Grant’s awards history should make his significance obvious. Nonetheless, the web is strikingly silent on Grant (and most of what there is concerns his two latest books, which are not speculative fiction).

There is (of course) a reasonably good Grant page at the ever-utile Encyclopedia of Science Fiction. Beyond that, the best page I could discover, and it is helpful, is Richard Grant at the literarydc site, which includes a sufficient biography plus a list of all his books, with notes and reviews. Grant has—or had—a blog, [ d r e a m w i n d o w ], which is still up but hasn’t been updated since 2014.

For anything more, we have to go to the few scattered reviews of individual Grant books (in order of publication), not all of which are really helpful:

(Some of these books are related; I hesitate to call them a “series”; but I’m thinking about it.
Note that this is not all of Grant’s speculative fiction.)
