About James Islington
James Islington was born and raised in southern Victoria, Australia. His influences growing up were the stories of Raymond E. Feist and Robert Jordan, but it wasn't until later, when he read Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series - followed soon after by Patrick Rothfuss' Name of the Wind - that he was finally inspired to sit down and write something of his own. He now lives with his wife and daughter on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.

James' The Licanius Trilogy is published by Orbit. The first two books (beginning with The Shadow of What Was Lost) are currently available in hardcover, paperback, audiobook and digital formats. The final book of the trilogy is currently being written (up-to-date information on James' current projects can be found here), and has an estimated publication date of late 2018.

James is represented by Paul Lucas of Janklow & Nesbit.
