A biochemist by training, EH Rydberg is the published author of numerous scientific papers. He was also the recipient of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) Science Writing Prize (2005) for Through the Illusions – a story that presents the relationship between schizophrenia and smoking at a publicly accessible level. ‘Through the Illusions’ was subsequently translated into Italian and published as ‘Attraverso il Illusioni’ by the Italian popular science journal KOS.
Edwin is also the founder and owner of Utility Fog Press. This small press has published three short fiction anthologies from up-and-coming authors from around the world. The two most recent, Assassins’ Canon and Farspace 2, are still available on Amazon in print or e-book formats. UFP has recently spawned a new imprint Quantum Dot Press, which provides services and advice for authors wishing to self-publish. More recently, Edwin has founded Promoting Yorkshire Authors, a group dedicated to developing tools and resources for debut and independent authors to use in promoting their books.
When not writing or publishing, or thinking about writing and publishing, Edwin volunteers at local primary schools either leading writing workshops or guiding code clubs.
Edwin’s own writings range from the fun, relationship-driven superhero stories of the Destiny City Chronicles to, as yet unpublished, near future SF noire and far future adventure. He’s also volunteers at local primary schools where he shares his children’s stories and his love of technology.
Edwin H Rydberg currently lives in Harrogate, UK with his Italian wife, British daughter and Israeli cat where he enjoys writing science fiction/fantasy, young adult novels, and children’s books. He is keenly interested in modern social issues, and influence of technology on humanity.
