(? - ) Australian author whose Poison Wars sequence, beginning with City of Lies (2018) hovers Equipoisally between Fantasy and moderately Far Future topoi with an infusion of worldbuilding in the style of the Planetary Romance. An expansive-seeming culture, with resemblances to sentimental versions of ancient Rome, turns out to conceal a Dystopian power structure. This book won a Ditmar Award as best novel. [JC]
