ALEX LAMB Roboteer
A fast-paced, gritty space opera based on cutting edge science. Humanity is at war with itself. Those who went into space have altered themselves to survive the harsh conditions in their new colonies. They have become more than human. But they are few, and the religiously-inspired masses of Earth have declared war on their blasphemies. For one small crew of augmented humans, the war is a far-away thing – until a chance encounter with a new Earther weapon proves that the battle is about to come much closer to home. Alex Lamb splits his time between writing science fiction, software engineering, teaching improvised theatre, running business communication skills workshops and conducting complex systems research. Roboteer is his debut novel.
