Quantum Gravity is a series of five books set in a future Earth where worlds of the imagination have been made real by a singularity event. The details were lost in time but one thing that survived is the music.
The most badass elf in history is inside the covers at the head of a rock band, The No Shows and you can hear their hit song here, kindly re-recorded and re-mastered in this continuum for the Quantum Gravity project by Roland Hartwell and Cynic Guru.
The inspiration for this series of books was a daydream. I’d written serious Science Fiction for three novels at this point: Silver Screen, Mappa Mundi and Natural History, plus the also-serious but weirder-than-usual Living Next Door To The God of Love. I wonder, I thought, if I could write a book about a kick-ass woman robot. And there should be a love interest. But he would have to be equally up there in terms of kick-assery, and also weird in his own way, not some lumpen human so they get stuck in the ‘oh no I’m in love with a mutant’ plot. My completely favourite fantasy element is all things elfy, so let’s have an elf. A politically revolutionary, grimdark-with-humour, smoking-hot elf. And let’s have literally smoking, so, half a demon. Yes! Now, how could such a thing come about…?
