About Craig Robert Saunders

‘Field of Heroes is a powerhouse of action and war, with an intrinsic dark humour reminiscent of Iain M. Banks. Very highly recommended.’ – Andy Remic.

I’m the author of ‘Field of Heroes’, ‘Hush’ and ‘Lore’ – space opera, space fleet and space marine stories. Some of my favourite science fiction comes from Neal Asher, Andy Remic, Iain M. Banks, Dan Abnett and Richard M. Morgan. As a reader I’m a sucker for a great robot or a smart ship.

As Craig Saunders I’ve written around fifty novels and novellas, including ‘Highwayman’, ‘Vigil’ and ‘The Dead Boy’, and a hundred or so short stories. As ‘Craig R. Saunders’ I wrote the seven-book fantasy saga of the world of Rythe.

I publish science fiction with Severed Press. My next books due are ‘Xenophobia’ (science fiction) and ‘It Always Rains when the Circus Comes to Town’ (horror). I also publish novels independently under the Dark Fable Books/Fable Books labels.
