Adam Christopher's 'Empire State', Launch at Forbidden Planet!
ADAM CHRISTOPHER will be reading from and signing his stunning debut novel, EMPIRE STATE (Angry Robot) at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 5th January from 6 – 7pm.
The stunning noir-fantasy thriller set in the other New York. It was the last great science hero fight, but the energy blast ripped a hole in reality, and birthed the Empire State – a young, twisted parallel prohibition-era New York. When the rift starts to close, both worlds are threatened, and both must fight for the right to exist.
“Adam Christopher’s debut novel is a noir, Philip K Dick-ish science fiction superhero story… a novel of surreal resonances, things that are like other things, plot turns that hearken to other plot turns. It’s often fascinating, as captivating as a kaleidoscope… just feel it in all its weird glory.” Cory Doctorow, author of Makers and Little Brother
“Stylish, sinister, and wickedly fun, Empire State is not your average sexy retro parallel universe superhero noir.” Lauren Beukes, Arthur C Clarke Award winning author of Zoo City.
I still need to crack open my copy of 'Empire State' (soon, very soon...) but all being well I'm hoping to be around for this one. How about you?
