A superb novelisation of the hit British film.
MARK STAY Robot Overlords
The tie-in novel to a brilliant new British film starring Gillian Anderson and Sir Ben Kingsley. Three years ago, Earth was conquered by a force of robots from a distant world. They have one rule: STAY IN YOUR HOMES Step outside and you get one warning before you’re vaporised or incinerated. But Sean Flynn is convinced that his father is still alive. And when he and his gang figure out a way to break the robots’ curfew, they begin an adventure that will pit them against the might of the Robot Overlords. This will be the most successful, and stunning, UK film of the year, combining a superb script with brilliant cinematography and special effects. The tie-in, written by one of the scriptwriters, features extra scenes, illustrations, a making-ofthe-film diary and an exclusive short story, and will be a must-read for young adults and fans of the film. Mark Stay is a film script writer and debut novelist.
