About the Author
Globetrotter, homebrewer and writer Anthony St. Clair has walked with hairy coos in the Scottish Highlands, choked on seafood in Australia, and watched the full moon rise over Mt. Everest in Tibet. Anthony’s travels have also taken him around the sights and beers of Thailand, Japan, India, Canada, Ireland, the USA, Cambodia, China and Nepal. He and his wife live in Oregon and gave their son a passport for his first birthday.
One day while getting ready for a trip to India in 2003, Anthony had an idea about an ultimate traveler who became much more than just another globetrotter. After years of yapping about this character and that story idea, his wife told him he should really write some of these down. Being a smart husband, he listened. In 2011, Rucksack Press, and the Rucksack Universe of travel fantasy stories, was born.
An avid reader who loves to live the world, Anthony knew he wasn’t the only traveler who always needs a good book on the road. He is a long-time fan of Douglas Adams, Tom Robbins and Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, as well as television shows such as Doctor Who, Firefly and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Anthony’s Rucksack Universe travel fiction brings a similar off-the-cuff, irreverent, ordinarily profound, fantastical spin to globetrotting, indie travel and life itself.
