(?   -    ) US Cinema sound designer active from around 2009 as Nia Hansen, and author whose The Graven sequence of Space Operas beginning with Nophek Gloss (2020) carries its vengeance-seeking protagonist through an exceedingly complex and expanding galaxy, with the ambivalent aid of a sentient Starship, via intersections with a wide range of Aliens, all embedded in what turns out to be a Multiverse. The protagonist Caiden becomes more interesting – as does Gersen in Jack Vance's Demon Princes sequence – as the story advances, with Azura Ghost (2022) auguring further sequels far removed from the traditional initial premise.
