(1968-    ) Canadian author, married to Kelly Robson, who also writes as by L X Beckett (sometimes given as Lex Beckett), most of their earlier work being fantasy. They began to publish work of genre interest with "Lucre's Egg" in Crank! for Autumn 1994; A Key to the Illuminated Heretic (in Alternate Generals III (anth 2005) edited by Harry Turtledove; 2007 ebook) is an Alternate History tale featuring Joan of Arc; their first sequence, the Indigo Springs series beginning with Indigo Springs (2009), is fantasy involving subterranean Magic; the protagonist of the Hidden Sea Tales sequence beginning with Child of a Hidden Sea (2014) finds herself transported from a desolate California into the Archipelago world of Stormwrack, where in Science-Fantasy fashion she becomes a pirate and applies her scientific knowledge to better things, and to profit from them.

Dellamonica is of primary sf interest for The Bounceback sequence as by L X Beckett, beginning with Gamechanger (2019), which is set at a point just after Homo sapiens had seemingly transacted the gauntlet of the Near Future, safe passage suggesting that we are no longer on course to destroy Earth, and the Solar System is no longer at risk from us. The problem facing emergent humanity is that Extraterrestrial civilizations are not convinced we have become sufficiently adult to be allowed off the home planet. [JC]
