A Quantum Mythology
BeschreibungPraised by Stephen Baxter and Adam Roberts, reviewed ecstatically by SFX magazine, Gavin Smith is one of the brightest stars of space opera. In the far future, many years after the loss of earth, humanity has changed. Strength is the only way to survive. And the most vicious man alive has a new con in mind... Here and now, a man with unnatural powers hunts down a killer with impossible abilities. Infused with a barely-understood alien technology, the two are merely pawns in a bigger game... A long time ago, the last tribes of Northern Britain face an unimaginable enemy. Demons risen from the sea, absorbing and twisting everything they touch. But there are some among the tribes who have power, who will fight... And all of these times are connected... Gavin Smith's new epic space opera is a wide-ranging exploration of the past, present and future of mankind.
PortraitGavin Smith, born in Dundee, now lives in Leicester. With a degree in Media Production (specialising in script writing) and a MA in Medieval history he is the worst person in the world to watch a historical movie with. Fortunately he may just be the best person to write the next book you read if you love violent SF thrillers that crank up the fun with the body-count and keep you thinking. He owns his own marketing company.
PressestimmenGavin Smith's writing is a brutal kaleidoscope of imagination, with the raw energy of a heavy metal album cover: equally dazzling with bloodthirsty ancient Picts and the fallen post-humans of tomorrow. Hannu Rajaniemi, author of The Causal Angel
