More About the Author

Greg Curtis was born in New Zealand, land of the long white cloud and small flightless birds, in the city of Wellington, renown for its high winds and the almost magical ability of rain and sleet to be lifted off the street and blasted into one's face. After eighteen years of suffering the cold and wet, he was finally blown away in a particularly bad storm to settle far away as a student, for more years then most would ever admit to, and then more latterly, an overqualified and underpaid worker in the health sector, (aren't we all).

He has lived in the city of Rotorua, one of the very few places in the world where people have actually chosen to reside beside active geysers and breath air that reeks of sulphur, for the past fifteen years, working by day for his daily bread, and toiling away by night on his books. When not engaged in his great passions of reading and writing science fiction and fantasy, drinking strong black coffee (some call it tar), and consuming copious amounts of chocolate (dark naturally), he lives a quiet life of contemplation as the high priest to his two cats, worshipping them with regular gifts of food, occasional grooming and by providing them with a warm dry place to sleep. They in turn look down upon him with typical feline disdain, but occasionally deign to bring him gifts of headless vermin, - as a warning.

In a desperate bid to understand the meaning of his life, he has recently started studying philosophy, particularly metaphysics, and finally concluded that God is a cat!

Cheers and be good or don't get caught.

Greg.

About the Author

Greg Curtis was born in New Zealand, land of the long white cloud and small flightless birds. He grew up in the city of Wellington, renown for its high winds and the almost magical ability of rain and sleet to be lifted off the street and blasted into one's face. After eighteen years of suffering the cold and wet, he was finally blown away in a particularly bad storm to settle far away as a student, for more years then most would ever admit to. Then finally when the universities pronounced him done he became an overqualified and underpaid worker in the health sector, (aren't we all). He has lived in the city of Rotorua, one of the very few places in the world where people have actually chosen to reside beside active geysers and breath air that reeks of sulphur, for the past fifteen years. He works by day for his daily bread by speaking to people about their various diarrhoeal illnesses. While at night he toils away on his books. When not engaged in his great passions of reading and writing science fiction and fantasy, drinking strong black coffee (some call it tar), and consuming copious amounts of chocolate (dark naturally), he lives a quiet life of contemplation as the high priest to his two cats. His duties include worshipping them with regular gifts of food, the occasional grooming and providing them with a warm dry place to sleep. They in turn look down upon him with typical feline disdain, but occasionally deign to bring him gifts of headless vermin, - as a warning. In a desperate bid to understand the meaning of his life, he has recently started studying philosophy, particularly metaphysics, and come to a startling conclusion. God is a cat! Cheers and be good or don't get caught.

This book considers how an alien culture deals with interactions with humans. They (the elves) wrestle with their own prejudices, factions, ideologies and terrorism. Curtis gets around the fact that these are very human-like aliens by having them live in a parallel earth, therefore they can interbreed with humans (so they must have closely matched DNA, but they look like elves and have very different cultural standards.

The hero is a fairly isolated individual who can travel between worlds - which places him right in the middle of the action.

I enjoyed the book on several levels. We saw the hero, Elrick, from several different perspectives, not all complimentary. The monsters were appropriately scary. Elrick was refreshingly fallible, scared, bemused, confused, selfish, brilliant, courageous, naive with women... The list goes on. So good to get my teeth into a properly complex character, as it were.

Fantastic scenario 27 May 2014
By William T. Staman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
All Greg's novels so far are exciting, fast paced reads without the doom & gloom in so many books.
Unlike many where the first chapters are great, then devolve into hopeless situations, Greg keeps the same theme throughout.
I just wish he'd get a better editor to help with phraseology.

By renee - Published on Amazon.com

This is the type of book I really like. It has an unusual person handling an unusual life as I might myself if it were me. You can't get a book better than that. I really liked the plot idea and characters. Who wouldn't enjoy prospecting for opals for a living and I can sympathize with having to put up with a trailior and lack of bathroom luxuries while being rich enough to afford the best if you could only figure out a way to get it to another world! Understand you are planning a second book. Hurrah! Can't wait to read.

Not a children's story 14 April 2014
By James R. Norton Sr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read most of this author's work. I like this story line, especially his legal arguments for the governing of this universe. Be aware this is an adult themed book. explicit scenes are within it.
