About Niall Teasdale

I'm a computer programmer who has been writing fantasy and sci-fi since I was fifteen. The Thaumatology series is, therefore, the culmination of 30 years work! Wow! Never thought of it like that.

Review by: Isaac D on Aug. 28, 2013 :
If there's one things Niall does well, it's build deep, interesting worlds. This book goes in a new direction, with space opera instead of contemporary fantasy, but many of the characteristics that mark his writing previous to now remain present—and that is not a complaint.

The majority of the book is the journey of a woman who comes into enormous power, and attempts to re-establish herself amoungst a multitude of outside influences. Just like in the Thaumatology series, the protagonist's companion is a omnisexual bon vivant and there are three to four major powers engaging in politics behind the scenes.

Fair warning for puritanical American readers: this is a fairly libertine fiction, and there is a fair amount of non-explicit sexual action. Think something like Hamilton's Merry Gentry series—or anything by Shirow Masamune.

Strongly recommended for transhumanists or fans of SFCs.

Review by: Hansi Hase on July 14, 2013 :
I think the Tags and description is a bit wrong.
It is a Lesbian Porno book with some SiFi story around the sex.
Half the book is Sex between women. Still it is a good book, but it should be labeled as Lesbian Sex Book with some SiFi story around.
