Science, adventure and a ponder on the nature of biology, destiny and power – it must be Glorious Angels!
The groundbreaking new novel from one of the genre’s most respected authors comes into paperback: a thrilling mix of science, magic and sexual politics.
Glorious Angels was shortlisted for the BSFA Best Novel Award for 2015. It didn’t win but hey, the shortlist is where the winning really is! Thanks to everyone who voted for it.
At the moment there is no sequel planned, other than the one on my hard drive, although people ask all the time about a second book so if you really want some more let me know!
