Williams, Lynda

Tagged: Author | Editor

(1958-    ) Canadian author most of whose work is set in the Okal Rel Universe, intentionally created as a Shared World of future interstellar conflict between rival cultures whose roots lie in Earth's past Colonization of Other Worlds, with a touch of Medieval Futurism in its ruling Houses, princes and empires. The first-published volume Throne Price (2003) with Alison Sinclair is Williams's sf debut but fourth in the chronology of the main Okal Rel saga [see Checklist below]. This begins with The Courtesan Prince (2005) as #1, in turn preceded by such sidebar tales as Kath: A Novella of the Okal Rel Universe (2004 chap). With various co-editors Williams has published a number of Okal Rel Anthologies of stories by various hands, beginning with The Okal Rel Universe Anthology I (anth 2005) with Virginia O'Dine. The shared-world series bible is Guide to the Okal Rel Universe (2006). [DRL]
