Ian Sales is a British science fiction writer, editor and founder of the SF Mistressworks website. Although born in the UK, he grew up in the Middle-East, in Qatar, Oman, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

In the 1990s he was joint editor of The Lyre science-fiction magazine, which published work by authors such as Eric Brown, Stephen Baxter, Gwyneth Jones and Peter F Hamilton.

In 2012, he edited the anthology Rocket Science for Mutation Press. One of the non-fiction articles in the anthology, 'The Complexity of the Humble Spacesuit' by Karen Burnham was nominated for the BSFA Award in the non-fiction category.

His self-published novella Adrift on the Sea of Rains, the first book of the Apollo Quartet, was described by the Guardian national newspaper as "one of the most outstanding self-published books of the year". It won the 2012 BSFA Award in the short fiction category, and was a finalist for the 2012 Sidewise Award for Alternate History Best Short-Form.
