Biography[edit]

Jamie Delano wrote all but three of the first forty issues of Hellblazer for DC Comics from 1988 to 1991. Most of his other work has also been for DC/Vertigo.

Much of Delano's work can be characterised as science fiction, or horror, but often is a blend thereof.

Subjects in his work include the War of the sexes (World Without End), imperialism and genocide (Ghostdancing), and environmental & cultural collapse (2020 Visions, Animal Man).

A. William James is Delano's prose-writing alter ego. His novel Book Thirteen is published under his Lepus Books imprint.
