Jasper Fforde is a British [[ScienceFiction science-fiction]], {{fantasy}}, and [[MysteryFiction detective mystery]] novelist, oftentimes all three at once. He's the mind behind such offbeat series as ''Literature/ThursdayNext'', ''Literature/NurseryCrime'', and ''Literature/ShadesOfGrey'', and famous for his humorous style, both silly and highly intellectual, playing quite liberally with meta-fictional concepts (And for the puns. [[HurricaneOfPuns Tons and tons of puns]]). Fforde is an aviation buff and enjoys flying, and before publishing his first book, ''The Eyre Affair'', in 2001, he worked as a cameraman on such Hollywood productions as ''[[JamesBond Goldeneye]]'', ''Quills'', and ''Entrapment''. Recently Fforde has announced his entry into the young adult market with his novel, ''Literature/TheLastDragonslayer''.
