His first books, the Shadowkings trilogy beginning with Shadowkings (2001), were fantasy. However, the subsequent Humanity's Fire trilogy - comprising Seeds of Earth (2009), The Orphaned Worlds (2010) and The Ascendant Stars (2011). ANCESTRAL MACHINES (2016) is a standalone novel set in the same universe, featuring a kind of macrostructure comprising 200 worlds and an artificial sun; Splintered Suns (2018), set in the same universe, features a heist and at least one ancient artefact.

In future, his energy may well find wider fields of play. (Graham Sleight/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
