Belated happy birthday to the acclaimed Michael J. Sullivan

Michael J. Sullivan first gained notice for RIYRIA REVELATIONS and RIYRIA CHRONICLES, a pair of interrelated series set in the fantasy world of Elan. Translated into fifteen languages, the acclaimed RIYRIA novels have been selected for more than sixty best of the year or most anticipated lists, including mentions by Library Journal, Barnes & Noble,, and Goodreads. 

Sullivan’s third series, THE FIRST EMPIRE, set in the distant past of Elan, explores the true history of the mythical world. The first volume, AGE OF MYTH, premiered in 2016 and the second, THE AGE OF SWORDS, earlier this year. 

His first science fiction novel, the standalone HOLLOW WORLD came out in 2014 to overwhelming praise including a James Tiptree, Jr. Award Honorable Mention and a Kurd-Laßwitz-Preis nomination.

PLOTHOLE #5 by Michael and Sarah Sullivan

In 2011 Sullivan came up with PLOTHOLES, a comic strip that pokes some fun at writing fantasy and publishing in general. Not having the skills to produce the graphics for the project he turned to his daughter Sarah to lend a hand. The duo have produced six strips.

All of us at Tachyon wish Michael a stupendous birthday!
