Richard Morgan (born 1965) is a British science fiction author.
Richard Morgan was, until his writing career took off, a tutor at Strathclyde University in the English Language Teaching division. He has travelled widely and lived in Spain and Istanbul. He is a fluent Spanish speaker.
In 2002 Morgan's first novel Altered Carbon was published, combining elements of cyberpunk and hardboiled detective fiction and featuring the anti-hero Takeshi Kovacs. The film rights for the book were sold, which enabled Morgan to become a full-time writer. In 2003 the U.S. edition received the Philip K. Dick Award.
