Richard Grant

USA (1952 - )

Grant, who lives in Rockport, was born in Norfolk, Va., attended the Univ. of Virginia, and served in the U.S. Coast Guard. He was a contributing editor of Down East magazine, writes for the Camden Herald, and chaired the literature panel of the Maine Arts Commission. He generally writes science fiction and fantasy books, though his 1996 Tex & Molly in the Afterlife broke new ground for him. Set in "Dublin," Maine (fictitious place similar to Belfast), it's a Vonnegut-like tale of aging hippies contemplating mortality. It's also been described as just the thing for someone who thinks there should be more light fiction about witches. He has two children with Maine novelist Elizabeth Hand.
