We’ve become huge fans of Anarchy Books in the last year. Maybe it’s because they keep publishing fascinating and hard-hitting works of speculative goodness. Or maybe it’s because we read Remic’s novel (Serial Killers Inc.), came out completely screwed up in the head, and can’t seem to go back to normal. Either way, any time we hear about something new coming out of the Anarchy universe, we want to tell you all about it.
This week, Anarchy Books announced two new upcoming books, one by Eric Brown (who folks should know by now) and Dan Henk. We’re stoked, to say the least!
Here’s the info:
Saturday 19th November is a date for your diaries, with Anarchy Books releasing not one wholesome SF novel, but two!
First comes New York Nights by SF Heavyweight, Eric Brown.
“New York 2040 is a city of the lost. So, a good place to work in Missing Persons. But business is not so good that Hal Halliday can forget his sister, burned alive when she was a child. Now, only VR offers the chance to bring her back. The future may yet allow Hal to live in the past – if he can survive his next job…”
Described by Peter F. Hamilton as “the name to watch in SF“, and Brown’s novel HELIX described by Stephen Baxter as, “a classic concept – a built world to dwarf Rama and Ringworld – a setting for a hugely imaginative adventure. Helix is the very DNA of true sf. This is the rediscovery of wonder”, this first digital release of New York Nights is available as a PDF, EPUB or MOBI format, for the low price of £1.99. Artwork by Jethro Lentle. Check out www.anarchy-books.com.
The second “SF Saturday” release emerges from the crazy imagination of famous tattoo artist Dan Henk. The Black Seas of Infinity is Dan Henk’s debut novel, and what a powerhouse of action SF it is!
“Visions of pulp era heroes fill his thoughts. Taking advanced physics, he dreams big, but harsh reality bites as he grows up, and he resigns himself to building surveillance drones for the military. After a brief probative period, he’s unexpectedly moved into the clandestine world of investigating crashed alien craft. Fascinated beyond anything he thought possible, it’s a dream come true but his lack of social skills get him fired. However, he’s seen too much – and a year later returns to pull off a bloody heist… Fleeing into the woods with the military in hot pursuit, he makes a mad scramble up the coast. It’s only then he discovers the world has grown strange. Businesses are closed. Highways deserted. The US has become fractured… Trigger happy locals and violent militias are only the beginning. Death, madness, and the unwelcome return of creatures from beyond this world await…”
Think X-Files crossed with Alastair Reynolds and you’ll begin to get a picture of where Dan’s stunning original SF writing will lead you…
The Black Seas of Infinity is available in PDF, EPUB or MOBI flavours, for the low low price of £1.99. Artwork and internal illustrations by Dan Henk. Check out www.anarchy-books.com.
