Unexpectedly, a ripple ran through the growth, then the whole mound moved...Even worse, it spoke to her. 'Nora,' it said in a thick, muffled voice. 'Nora...It's me...' And before she could react Norm reached out with two soft, slightly sticky arms and hugged her for the first time in years.'" Harry Adam Knight was the pseudonym for John Brosnan (1947 - 2005).

First Edition, Hardcover, Very Fine, Very Fine. Book. Mulcahey, Steve
Hardcover UK, first printing and true first edition. Very fine (unread) copy in very fine jacket. Britain is a pariah state bombed and embargoed back into a semi-fedual society where the social order is breaking down. The story becomes an Odyssey adventure through the deteriorating British countryside when Fen begins the unwilling pursuit to London where his (estranged and not much missed) wife, has been taken by the Bulldog gang as a (not so unwilling) concubine by the gang leader. James Lovegrove has been writing SF since 1990. Well respected in the UK, he is yet relatively unknown in the US. A recent omnibus by Solaris Press, The James Lovegrove Collection: Volume One, has published two of this novels, Days (1997) and Untied Kingdom (2003). Hopefully this omnibus will get Lovegrove the recognition in the US which he deserves.

Macleod, the Scottish equivalent of Bruce Sterling, is the author of the The Star Fraction (a 1996 runner-up for the Arthur C. Clarke Award), and like Sterling focuses his writing in the realm of political SF. He was nomiated for the 1998 British Science Fiction Award (BSFA) for The Cassini Division, and won it in 1999 for The Sky Road. "MacLeod's original and subversive way of imagining his futures easily overshadows the formulaic elements of his narrative." - Locus, May 2001. "Cosmonaut Keep opens MacLeod's new SF sequence Engines of Light. It is highly entertaining and intelligent, promising more good things to come." - David Langford. "[T]he greatest living Trotskyist libertarian cyberpunk science-fiction writer." - Salon website. Both panels for the excellent full color, wrap-around dustjacket illustration by Lee Gibbons are pictured here. Award History: 2002 Hugo Award Nominee for Best Novel; 2001 Arthur C. Clarke Award Nominee (lost to Parable of the Talents by Octavia Butler.)
