Child of Fire, Harry Connolly's debut novel and the first in the Twenty Palaces series, was named one of Publishers Weekly's Best 100 Novels of 2009. The sequel, Game of Cages, was released in 2010 and the third book, Circle of Enemies, came out in 2011, as did a prequel (cleverly) titled Twenty Palaces. King Khan, a pulp adventure novel based on the role-playing game Spirit of the Century, was released in 2013 by game company Evil Hat.
Later in 2013, Harry ran a Kickstarter for his apocalyptic epic fantasy trilogy, The Great Way, which was released in 2015. As stretch goals for that project, he published his pacifist urban fantasy A Key, an Egg, an Unfortunate Remark, and the short fiction collection Bad Little Girls Die Horrible Deaths and Other Tales of Dark Fantasy, which includes the Twenty Palaces short story "The Homemade Mask."
Harry lives in Seattle with his beloved wife, his beloved son, and his beloved library system.
