Andrew Harman is a science fiction and fantasy fiction author from the UK. His novels bear titles that pun on other famous works. Each work reflects its playful title, having a plot matching the work to which it alludes, with a humorous twist.

Many of his novels are set in the fictional UK town of Camford, which is a hybridisation of the two university towns of Oxford and Cambridge.

His books are published under the Orbit imprint in the UK.

Andrew Harman studied biochemistry at the University of York, being a member of Wentworth College.

He was inspired to become a better writer when a superior at work told him "this isn't your best writing."
