Tregillis, Ian

Tagged: Author

(1973-    ) US author who began to publish work of genre interest with "The Tin Man's Lament" in Inside Straight (anth 2008) edited by George R R Martin, a Wild Cards Braid; he is best known for his complicatedly Equipoisal Milkweed Triptych, starting with Bitter Seeds (2010), set in an Alternate History version of World War Two and afterwards, where Magic works, the Nazis tamper with the occult in their attempts to create Supermen, and various characters combat each other for the fate of the world. Time Travel stirs the mix. Not entirely dissimilarly, the Clakkers Trilogy beginning with The Mechanical (2015) posits an Alternate History in which Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695) applies proto-Steampunk clockmaking skills to the creation of sentient Robots, who rebel.
