William King (author)

William King (author)

William King (born 1959) also known as "Bill King" is the writer of a number of successful science-fiction and fantasy books, most notably in Games Workshop's Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 series, all published by GW's fiction arm, The Black Library. His most memorable characters, Gotrek and Felix, have appeared in a series of novels, beginning with "Trollslayer", a collection of previously published and new short stories. His next-most-famous character is Ragnar Blackmane, a Space Marine from the "Warhammer 40,000" game setting universe (although the character was already in existence in the game and background material, King took him and expanded his history in the novel series).

Prior to moving to the Czech Republic, King spent a number of years as a designer for Games Workshop, contributing to their game universes (where much of his fiction is also set). He has also written a trilogy of books featuring the Death's Angels which are currently available in the Czech Republic, Spain and Germany and is currently working on the fourth book in the Terrarch series furthering the adventures of Halfbreed and company.

He married his long-time girlfriend Radka on September 24, 2005 and in July 2006 he relocated his family back to Scotland where they hope to settle.
