Authors Biography

Elaine Graham-Leigh is an activist, medieval historian and qualified accountant (because even radical movements need someone doing the books), based in north London. She has written on politics and medieval history, and science fiction short stories, but The Caduca is her first novel.


‘an entertaining and exciting book about a serious subject, with a female hero whose optimism gives us everything to root for’, Stephen Theaker, Theaker’s Quarterly Fiction.

… [a] glitteringly good debut novel’, The Morning Star

‘Graham-Leigh has written a book that stands with the unremarked, the overlooked, the dispossessed… a remarkable achievement’, Counterfire

‘Elaine Graham-Leigh spins an engaging tale that resonates with contemporary issues’, The Fantasy Hive

Leave a comment about this book:


  1. Will keep your interest from beginning to end.

  2. Elaine Graham-Leigh gives her faraway colony and her two female protagonists a rich and believable history. There are some echoes of Frank Herbert’s magisterial DUNE saga, which sets Graham-Leigh up there with the giants of the genre.

  3. Great book!

  4. Fabulous read!
