Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Speeds along with energetic panache.” Times (London)
“Morden has a natural talent for a plot that keeps the reader guessing.” Guardian (London)
“A fast-paced thriller…an absorbing read.” Telegraph (London)
“Morden keeps up a breathless breakneck pace that doesn’t sacrifice character depth or intelligence…The Samuel Petrovich Trilogy promises to be a fast-paced thrill ride for the cynical urban space cowboy in all of us.” io9
“An engrossing, if occasionally goofy, adventure…Samuli’s mix of action and research makes him a fresh and engaging character, and the escalating scale of danger and violence moves the plot along briskly.” Publishers Weekly
“Small, immoral, likably unlikable, Petrovich steps fully formed onto the neon-slick streets of London as if on the run from a classic anime.” Jon Courtenay Grimwood, author of the Arabesk trilogy

Author Bio: Simon Morden

Author Bio: Simon Morden

Dr. Simon Morden, BSc, PhD, is a bona fide rocket scientist with degrees in geology and planetary geophysics. He’s now employed as a part-time teaching assistant at a Gateshead primary school, which he combines with his duties as a house-husband. His not-so-secret identity as journeyman writer started when he sold the short story “Bell, Book, and Candle” to an anthology, and a chaotic mix of science fiction, fantasy, and horror followed. Heart came out to critical acclaim, and Another War was shortlisted for a World Fantasy Award. The Lost Art was subsequently a finalist for the Catalyst Award for Best Teen Fiction. Morden has also been the editor of the British Science Fiction Association’s writers’ magazine, Focus, a judge for the Arthur C. Clarke Awards, and a regular speaker at the Greenbelt Arts Festival on matters of faith and fiction. In 2009, he was on the winning team for the Rolls Royce Science Prize.
