(1961-    ) Australian author whose Parrish Plessis sequence of Cyberpunk tales, beginning with Nylon Angel (2004), feature a female operative who stirs up trouble in a Near Future noir City in Australia known as the Tert: complications due to Aliens and Genetic Engineering pile up. A similar array of complications enriches the Space Opera setting of the Sentients of Orion sequence beginning with Dark Space (2007), with a planet at threat, living Spaceships piloted by humans Genetically Engineered to cope with the challenge, and maybe a god (see Gods and Demons) in space.
