About the Author

I was born in Kingston, Ontario. Writing novel-length stories about demonic paperboys and weaponized leprosy since the age of 15, science fiction with a strong dose of horror is my primary interest, and a passion for real-world science and engineering has endured. I was degreed at the University of Waterloo in the field of nanotechnology engineering, and can sometimes be found working in a clean room in a full-body ‘bunny suit’, making incredibly tiny and fragile devices. I am presently pursuing a PhD at the University of Sherbrooke in Quebec.

Stephen King made me want to be a novelist; George Carlin and other comedians made me want to be funny, and true. I feel that my professional training gives me an advantage in maintaining the suspension of disbelief in regards to the science and technology described within my stories, and my temptation is to over-explain. As an author of fiction I have brute-forced myself to some level of quality, having finally written such releasable works as Terra Incognita and The Council of Larry. I am currently developing an extension of the multiverse initiated in TI, a novel called Zenith.

Mark Ferguson's Terra Incognita is a complex book. There are many complicated ideas that the author put to words. At times, I had to double back and re-read sections – not because it was poorly written, but because the concept was hard to comprehend. The author does a fantastic job with the amount of detail included. Those who are less interested in detail may find the book hard to read, however for people who enjoy the additional level of information in their stories will love the author's writing style. There are a lot of alien races, each with their own unique abilities and the author provides a good level of world building to give each race substance. I applaud the author for the amount of thought and planning to bring this story together. This story is not my personal flavor of reading, however I did find it interesting and could see where this would appeal to heavy science fiction readers who love detail and extensive world building.
