Christopher Priest

Christopher Priest is an award winning British author of science fiction who is probably best known for the novels "Fugue for a Darkening Island" and "Inverted World".

Many of Christopher Priest's novels focus on the nature of memory, reality and narrative truth, often featuring "unreliable" narrators, a narrator who's credibility has been brought into doubt, casting the point of view of the story in a new light.

Often refered to as a British Philip K Dick he has a similar style and often writes with the same lack of science fiction tropes while creating believable, everyday characters.
