Jeff Noon

Jeff Noon

Jeff Noon (born 1957) is a novelist, short story writer and playwright whose works make extensive use of wordplay and fantasy. Noon's speculative fiction books have ties to the works of writers such as Lewis Carroll and Jorge Luis Borges. Prior to his recent relocation (around the year 2000) to Brighton, Noon set most of his stories in some version of his native city of Manchester.

Jeff Noon has been a pop musician, a painter and a playwright. His first play won the Mobil Playwriting Competition and he was subsequently playwright in residence at The Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester. He won the John W. Campbell Memorial Award 1995 and Vurt, his first novel, won the Arthur C. Clarke Award.

Noon's first 4 novels are part of a series sharing ongoing characters and background, commonly referred to after the first novel as the Vurt series. Automated Alice (1996) is a ”trequel”, a companion piece of sorts to Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.
