Jo Walton

Jo Walton comes from Wales but lives at Montreal, exclusively from the first person. My aim is to live to be ninety-nine and write a book every year.

The question people most frequently ask is the place to begin with my books. I have published thirteen books now, three literary collections, along with an essay collection -- with a different article collection and yet another publication because in 2018.
