GAVIN DEAS Empires: Extraction/Empires: Infiltration

Our planet has been discovered. By two powerful alien races. Who hate each other. Earth is caught in an interstellar war . . . Two books that radically redefine collaborative writing. Each tells different sides of the same story, but each has their own alien race and heroes to follow. When the two storylines meet, the encounter is seen from both points of view. Readable as standalone novels but combining into something greater than the sum of its parts, Empires is a remarkable story. Gavin Deas is the pseudonym for the collaborative writing team of bestselling Gollancz authors Stephen Deas and Gavin Smith.

GAVIN G. SMITH Quantum Mythology

The new novel set in the universe of The Age of Scorpio. Two mercenaries – they hate each other, most people hate them. But everyone has to try to make a living, however murderous the universe is. With a storyline that spans centuries and follows different timelines, this is another wildly inventive and violent space opera in the tradition of Richard Morgan. Gavin G. Smith lives in Leicester and is the author of Veteran, War in Heaven and the tie-in novel for the video game Crysis 3. With a degree in media production and an MA in Medieval History he is the worst person in the world to watch a historical movie with.


Imagine the world if you had slept for a hundred years . . . Rose slept for a hundred years and when she awoke the world as she knew it had vanished, utterly. Now Rose must take control of her future for the sake of her friends – and find a way to protect them. This is a beautifully put together tragic love story, underpinned by a realistic and frightening SF premise. Anna Sheehan is the author of A Long, Long Sleep and has been a dedicated writer since her first year of high school.
