(1995- ) Australian editor,politician and author who began to publish work of genre interest with "Aliens Ate My Anti-Grav Speeder" in Robot and Raygun for April 2014. Although his first novel Stormblood (2020) may accurately be described as Military SF set in an interstellar Space Opera venue, the heart of the tale revolves more intimately around the protagonist and his companions' instant addiction to the Drug stormtech, whose transformative effects make them close to Supermen. But their addiction binds them, even after discharge; and stormtech's composition – it is extracted from the DNA of an extinct Alien race – gives a sense that he may have only begun to plumb the mystery of his manipulated being.
