Creator: Christopher Priest (novelist)
Christopher Priest is a British author, primarily of Science Fiction. His best known works include The Prestige (which won a World Fantasy Award, and was adapted for film by Christopher Nolan), and The Inverted World. He also writes novelizations of films, usually under a Pen Name like John Luther Novak or Colin Wedgelock. His novelizations include E Xisten Z and Short Circuit.

His attempts to create scripts for Doctor Who and the resulting conflicts led the production company of that show to decide not to work with established literary writers in the future. (The scripts were never produced.)

Priest is a huge fan of H. G. Wells, who he openly acknowledges as a major influence on his work. In 2006, he became Vice President of the international H. G. Wells Society.
