Drew WagarDrew Wagar was born in Canada in 1970, but has lived in the UK since 1972. He was educated at the university of Brighton where he studied Computer Science.

He published his first novel, Torn, in 2011 and followed this up with contributions to the Fusion anthology in 2012.

This book, Elite: Reclamation was published by us in 2014. Its sequel, 'Premonition' was edited by the Fantastic Books Team and published by Frontier Developments.

It is available as both an audiobook and ebook and is available via Drew's author blog.

Drew is currently working on a wholly original SF series called the Shadeward Saga. The first instalment, Shadeward: Emanation, was launched at Fantasticon, 2015. The second instalment, Shadeward: Exoneration, at FantastiCon 2016. The third, Shadeward: Enervation, launched at FantastiCon 2019 and the audio version of book 1, read by the author, is available from Audible soon. Here is a trailer for the series created by Ramon Marett.



In addition, Drew has written an official novel to accompany the game Lords of Midnight, launched at FantastiCon 2018, and another official Elite: Dangerous book, Elite Dangerous: Premonition.


Drew first joined Fantastic Books as an entrant to our inaugural Sci-Fi short story competition, where his entry was deemed good enough for the anthology. Since then, Drew has become one of our best-selling authors and we invited him to contribute a professional entry to the anthology for our Sci-Fi Synthesis competition

Cast adrift with no memories of each other or their real family, both grow to adolescence friendless and destitute. All that stands between them and brutal early deaths are the talents they barely know they possess... and can’t control.
