Ward, David [2]

Tagged: Author

(1967-    ) Canadian teacher and author whose Grasslands Young Adult sequence beginning with Escape the Mask (2001) places its young cast in a rural world dominated, all the same, by a Dystopian tyranny, which they must escape. Archipelago (2008) takes its contemporary protagonist via Time Travel 14,000 years into the past, where he interacts with ancient peoples then migrating into America from what would become Siberia (see Prehistoric SF). Between Two Ends (2010), a fantasy, is set partly in this world and partly in a kind of Pocket Universe version of the world of Arabian fantasy [for Arabian Fantasy and Land of Fable see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below]. Ward should not be confused with the David Ward who is the author of the Perimeter One Adventures sequence. [JC]
