The Chronological Adventures of Detrius Thesper
By Niall Doran
"A singular tale... cleverly worked... and never lets up on the pace."
- Patsy Crawford, The Mercury, 15 May 1995.
"If you're looking for something to while away the empty months until Terry

- Sean Williams, Eidolon, October 1995

- Lisa DuMond, The SF Site (USA): The Best in Science Fiction and Fantasy
"It's... a book"
- Completely unrelated review, The Australian, sometime last year.
Now available from Desdichado Publishing.
The Chronological Adventures of Detrius Thesper:

wordier than Schwarzenneger,
and funnier than the senate,
it's the only book to sequelise itself...
- because who else will?
