Review

‘Brilliant science fiction and far-out world-building.’ Author: James McAvoy

‘A writer who really knows how to entertain ... Essential science fiction.’ Author: SFBook --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Author

Adrian Tchaikovsky was born in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire before heading off to Reading to study psychology and zoology. For reasons unclear even to himself he subsequently ended up in law and has worked as a legal executive in both Reading and Leeds, where he now lives. Married, he is a keen live role-player and occasional amateur actor, has trained in stage-fighting, and keeps no exotic or dangerous pets of any kind, possibly excepting his son. He is the author of the critically acclaimed Shadows of the Apt series, the Echoes of the Fall series, and several standalone novels, including Children of Time, the winner of the 30th Anniversary Arthur C. Clarke Award for Best Science Fiction Novel. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
