James Long (born 1949),[1] also writing humorous fiction with the pen name of Nick Nielsen, is a british author of science fiction and fantasy.[2]

In the dust jacket of his first book written as Nick Nielsen is written:

"Nick Nielsen does not live in East London although that is the address he normally gives when cornered. This is his first novel. After an interesting and occasionally successful working life as a semi-professional arm wrestler, he has now settled down to a career at the informal end of the alcohol distillation business. His friends describe him as generously proportioned and possibly fictitious."
