Creator: Peter Dickinson
Peter Dickinson is a prolific British author, who is known both for his crime fiction and for his books for younger readers, of which many are SF.

His works include the Changes trilogy — The Weathermonger, Heartsease, and The Devil's Children — in which a mysterious supernatural force causes modern England to revert to medieval levels of society and technology, and The Flight of Dragons, a mock-scholarly work which claimed that dragons really existed, and flew and breathed fire by means of large amounts of hydrogen generated as a metabolic by-product. The Changes trilogy was adapted loosely for television in 1975, and The Flight of Dragons even more loosely into an animated film in 1986.

He was awarded an OBE for services to Literature in 2009.
