In 1983, Priest was one of the twenty Granta Best of Young British Novelists. He is married to the writer Leigh Kennedy and lives in Hastings with their twin children, Simon and Elizabeth. He was previously married to the writer Lisa Tuttle.
Many of his works could be classified as science fiction. Priest's work often features unreliable narrators, and thereby raises questions about narrative, truth, and the nature of memory and reality.
He has been strongly influenced by the SF pioneer, H. G. Wells, and in 2006 was appointed to the distinguished position of Vice-President of the international H. G. Wells Society.
