About the Author

Ian Tregillis is the son of a bearded mountebank and a discredited tarot card reader. He was born and raised in Minnesota, where his parents had landed after fleeing the wrath of a Flemish prince. (The full story, he's told, involves a Dutch tramp steamer and a stolen horse.) Nowadays he lives in New Mexico, where he consorts with writers, scientists and other unsavoury types.


A confident and thrilling debutA dynamite first novelA white-knuckle plot, beautiful descriptions, and complex characters - Cory Doctorow on BITTER SEEDSA damned entertaining novel. If Bitter Seeds is any indication of what's to come, then Tregillis will have a fertile writing career. Receives my highest recommendationsThe one novel of 2010 I would recommend to anyone who believes that speculative fiction cannot compete with "literary" novelsA major new talent. - GEORGE R. R. MARTINExciting and intense - Publishers WeeklyEloquent and utterly compelling - Kirkus
