I am a science fiction writer and computer programmer. This site contains:

  • Contact details: My email address can be formed from parts of the URL of this web site. Please don’t send messages to my agents or to other third parties to pass on to me, and please don’t ask me to sign books.
  • There are no photos of me on the web. The world contains many people besides me who are named Greg Egan, and thanks to the idiots at Google and the trashy click-bait sites they rely on it’s possible to find images online of half a dozen different people that are labelled as “Australian SF writer Greg Egan,” but none are what they claim to be.
