Award-winning author Geoff Ryman, 56, was born in Canada but has lived most of his life in England. He is an author and has written numerous award-winning fiction, science-fiction, and fantasy novels. His most recent short story about Cambodia ‘Pol Pot’s Beautiful Daughter,’ has just been nominated for a 2007 Hugo Award given annually for science fiction and fantasy. Past Hugo winners include Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke. Ryman first wrote about Cambodia in ‘The Unconquered Country’ in 1986, and his 2006 novel ‘The King’s Last Song,’ is set in both the Angkorean empire of Jayavarman VII and in contemporary Cambodia.

“The hidden history of literary creativity anywhere is independent income,” he told the Expat Advisory Services by email.

Ryman spoke to Cat Barton on April 16 about Chinese martial arts films, the Cambodian Tourist Police, and the spark of literary inspiration.
