"What I loved about these three books was the author's ability to weave in ancient Greek myths,cultural and historic influences; it felt like ancient Greece, complete with warring city-states, but set on a far-away planet."
- Catherine Mackay
From the Author
Then, a further couple of months later, he'll call you late at night to say, "great book, son, with some fantastic ideas! I was totally hooked. A page-turner; kept me up at night. You know what this guy did? He took historical elements from ancient Greece and created a space opera with them."
And you'll say, after a brief pause, "what guy?"
And your dad will say, in a confused voice, "why, whoever wrote this. There was no name on the manuscript."
Now, what I should have said, of course, is something along the lines of "it's not really a space opera,dad, but a dark epic fantasy with a sci-fi twist, where the heroes face tough moral dilemmas, discovering themselves in the process."
But no-one talks to their dad this way, right?
So all I said, once I managed to stop laughing, was, "I wrote it, dad. But I'm super glad you liked it even before you knew that."
