From Wikipedia:

"Phillip Mann (born 1942) is a British-born, science fiction author resident in New Zealand since 1969...During this period that he wrote his first science fiction novel, The Eye of the Queen. The Eye of the Queen details the life of Marius Thorndyke, Earth's leading contact linguist and founder of the CLI (Contact Linguistics Institute) after he departs to the world called Pe-Ellia at the invitation of the species for whom that is their home world. The Eye of the Queen established Phillip Mann's reputation as a creator of 'credible aliens' – a feature which has remained prominent in his later works. The novel met with such critical success that some felt he would not be able to equal it. However, Master of Paxwax and its sequel, Fall of the Families, have become classics of New Zealand literature. The Master of Paxwax, Mann's second book, centres around the life of Pawl Paxwax. Pawl – and his name is significant – is the second son of the Fifth Family in a galaxy-wide empire ruled by Eleven Great Families. These Families have for centuries enslaved non-human life forms by a policy of alien genocide. Now things are changing. Beneath the surface of the seemingly dead world of Sanctum, surviving intelligent aliens are gathering, united in their desire to strike back at the barbarous society that had laid waste their civilisations. The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction describes Phillip Mann's fiction as possessing "a strong visual and structural sense"..."
