A stark warning, softened by the acerbic voice of satirical humour.
Alexander King's first book is a refreshing slant on speculative fiction, meshing satire and comedy with classic noir. The reference points (Starship Troopers, Neuromancer), and influences (Ellison, Gibson, Pratchett, Chandler) are clear, but work more as a road map than a template, at once self referential to the genre, and elevated beyond the sum of those starting points. Current themes are dissected with wit and a troubling amount of relevancy; a stark warning softened by the acerbic voice of satirical humour. An exciting new voice in post-science-fiction writing.Read the story now
