Overview

Welcome to the time travelling world of L.I.E.U. A future world where nothing is quite as it seems.

A world where a young girl is saved from certain death when an enormous library building suddenly appears in her back yard. A world where the chocolatiers of Bruges halve the world’s population without spilling a drop of blood. A world where a 3D printed rogue and his girlfriend help to steal some of the world’s most valuable books, and an ageing rock star attempts to breaks the rule about being in two places at once.

A world where it is possible to die a two thousand years before you are born, ageing can be suspended, and where artificial intelligence supplants that of humans.

A place where sometimes, not even those concerned can tell the difference between being a librarian, thief, or time-cop — particularly when time-travel is involved, and things happen in order, out of order, and simultaneously at different times.

About the Author

BARRY Dean is a mid-century relic. A fossilised remnant of a young boy born in 1949 in Lithgow.

From his early days as a long-haired muso with attitude, Barry worked as a techncian, construction inspector, engineer and engineering consultant before a stint as an expert witness for barristers sparked an interest in writing fiction.

Inspired by the likes of Douglas Adams, Roald Dahl and Terry Pratchett, writing fiction that sits just to the left of reality appeals to Barry's quirkier tendencies.

In his writing, Barry has created a world of his own making, inspired by the music of life, global travel, a love of history and old r-ins, and observation. In fact, his first novel The Garden of Emily Washburn (Hague Publishing, 2012) was inspired by watching the Cannes Film Festival and the incongruous sight of a beautiful woman on the arm of a man "with a head like a Picasso painting".

Barry splits his time between the home he shares with wife Theresa on the shores of the River Tamar and indulging a love of travel. At any given time, you can find him immersed in fiction writing, photography, curating a vintage guitar collection, or jamming with other ancient musos.
