K W Jeter
K W Jeter wrote an early Cyberpunk novel, Dr Adder, which was enthusiastically recommended by Philip K Dick. Jeter is also the first to coin the term “Steampunk,” in a letter to Locus magazine in April 1987, to describe the retro-technology, alternate-history works that he published along with his friends, Blaylock and Powers. Jeter’s Steampunk novels – Morlock Night and Infernal Devices – were republished by Angry Robot in April 2011.
As well as his own wildly original novels, K W Jeter has written a number of authorized Blade Runner sequels.
He currently lives in Ecuador with his wife, Geri. His website is kwjeter.com.
