ADAM ROBERTS Bête

The extraordinary new novel from the award-winning author. Bête is a fable, a thriller. It is a novel about humanity’s relationship to animals and the natural world in an age of pervasive technology. An area that SF has not often examined is looked at by Roberts’ unique eye. The result is a novel of the future that speaks to the urgent issues of today, as population places unprecedented pressures on the natural world, and our links with technology seek to isolate us from that world. This is typically brilliant work from one of the genre’s most acclaimed literary figures. Adam Roberts is a professor at Royal Holloway University. He is the awardwinning author of many critically acclaimed SF novels and bestselling parodies such as The Soddit.

JON WALLACE Barricade

A kinetic, violent and hugely intelligent debut SF road thriller. A fast-paced, droll and disturbing novel, Barricade is a savage road trip across the dystopian landscape of post-apocalypse Britain; narrated by the cold-blooded yet magnetic antihero, Kenstibec, who is set to be the new Takeshi Kovacs. Jon Wallace is a young and talented SF writer. He has worked in the charity sector. He has had SF short stories published. His debut novel will be followed by two further books that will also feature Kenstibec’s adventures in his compelling vision of a post-apocalyptic Britain.

MIKE, LINDA AND LOUISE CAREY The House of War and Witness

A stunning historical fantasy chronicling centuries of warfare, deceit and revenge. Autumn, 1739, and a regiment of the Hapsburg Empire is sent to fortify a border town. There is immediate tension – the villagers are clearly hiding something and the regimental colonel determined to discover their secret. Meanwhile, among the camp followers is Drozde, a young woman who can talk to ghosts. As war erupts, Drozde must choose her side: Hapsburgs or villagers? The living . . . or the dead? Mike, Linda and Louise Carey are authors of The City of Silk and Steel, as well as a number of solo projects in prose and graphic novel form.
