His first publications, released more or less simultaneously, were the rather bad Plasmid: A Novelization 1980 as by Robert Knight, a to an untraceable and perhaps unmade movie, and the impressive Capella's Golden Eyes 1980 , an extremely English version of the tale, set on a colony planet inhabited also by reclusive. Moving statues of incandescent gold shimmer into life, literally out of the air. The sense of Englishness in the tale is generated through the mundane detailing of life on Gaia, through the protagonist's lack of any real access to the roots of power or change, and through the co-opting of any benefits derived from conceptual breakthrough by a plot in which Gaia's first masters are simply replaced by a Chinese management team from Earth.

Vendavo agrees - it is prestigious work. They bring a little magic into the drudgery of the peasants' lives - and re-write history into the bargain. Aztec Century 1993 is an tale set in a late twentieth century dominated by an Aztec empire; the tale is perhaps unduly constrained by Evans's choice of narrator, a British princess whose befuddled and destructive intrusiveness serves at times to conceal the genuine attractions of the world she fails to grasp.
