Meet the Author

Nicholas Sheffield grew up in Hamilton, New Zealand. He obtained a Bachelor of Management Studies from the University of Waikato, and has a long history of work in the Information Systems sector. He and his wife Simone have six children.


Double Dragon published his first work, Overlanders, in 2004. The novel revolves around a group of friends whose utopian existence is put at risk when they’re thrust into the archaic and dangerous cities of the overlands.


Sheffield’s writings are generally set in, or around, the Earth, and employ a plausible use of technology. Therefore many of the popular science fiction themes, such as time travel and alternative dimensions, never appear in his works.


The concepts that form the spine of each story are often as important as the main narrative. They’re not always held up to the spotlight, but tend to be woven quietly into the background.

    Quirky

    Cool, but not quite up there with some of his other stuff. Still definitely worth the read though.

    Entertaining story

    A nice simple short story, well delivered. It revolves around a humongous coil gun, which are pretty cool things. Apparently they are being developed now for catapulting aircraft.
