In case you missed it, earlier this year we published the amazing Something Coming Through by Paul McAuley. We said it’s amazing . . . and we were far from the only ones! Take a look at the amazing quotes below and let them tempt you to give Something Coming Through a try.
‘Something Coming Through is as tight and relentlessly paced as an Elmore Leonard thriller, and full of McAuley’s customary sharp eye for dialogue and action. What’s really impressive, though, is that it achieves a seamless fusion of the day-after-tomorrow SF novel – it’s as interested in gritty Earthbound near-futurism as William Gibson or Lauren Beukes – with the cosmological themes of McAuley’s galaxy-spanning space operas. It’s the freshest take on first contact and interstellar exploration in many years, and almost feels like the seed for an entire new subgenre’ Alastair Reynolds, author of the bestselling Revelation Space novels.
‘McAuley’s latest is smart, it’s challenging, and as an exploration of the social consequences of sudden science fictional change, it’s very impressive indeed’ SFX
‘Full of exciting plot twists and an intriguing mix of human and non-human chracters, this murder mystery set up in a dystopian is future history at its very best’ Starburst Magazine
‘Brilliantly splits the difference between James A. Corey’s frenetic science fiction and the more considered catastrophes of McAuley’s own Quiet War novels. It’s fun; it’s fascinating; it’s fantastic’ Tor.com
