Neal Asher THE ENGINEER RECONDITIONED INTRODUCTION I am a classic overnight success i.e. that particular night was over twenty years long.

I spent many years in the wilderness of non-publication wondering if Id made the right choice of vocation while I wrote the inevitable fantasy trilogy still unpublished, then I was published in the ...

Neal Asher The Gabble Polity 13 Softly Spoke the Gabbleduck Lost in some perverse fantasy, Tameera lovingly inspected the displays of her Optek rifle. For me, what happened next proceeded with the unstoppable nightmare slowness of an accident. She brought the butt of the rifle up to her shoulder, took careful aim, and squeezed off a single shot. One of the sheq slammed back against a rock face, then tumbled down through vegetation to land in the white water of a stream. Some creatures seem to ...

Under the benevolent rule of artificial intelligences it is ever-expanding in the galactic disc. Many see it as a precursor to Utopia, possibly eternal. However, during its initial expansion, artefacts of ancient alien civilizations began to turn up, and to the dismay of the Utopians weve since learned just how small is our dominion. Slowly, evidence has accrued to show ...

However, upping the magnification of the image on his main screen dispelled his disappointment.
