About the Author
Jaine Fenn is a British author, mainly of science fiction, who practices a small but evenly balanced number of virtues and vices. She studied linguistics and astronomy before going on to work in IT, an experience which left her with a distrust of technology unusual in an SF writer. After having a number of short stories professionally published in the early noughties, she turned her writing virtue/vice into a career when her first novel was picked up by Gollancz in 2007. The Hidden Empire series are far future SF, with each book telling a discrete story which contributes to the overall plot.
