Ellis (Skip) Knox has been a medieval historian, a computer support tech, and a university webmaster, but he has retired from all that to write books. A pioneer in online education, he offered the first web-based, university history course in 1994. His publications include the novels Goblins at the Gates, A Child of Great Promise, and Into the Second World (available in late July). He also has published two novelettes and two short stories. All are Altearth tales. More information can be found at altearth.net.
