Lazlo Ferran: Exploring the Landscapes of Truth.
Educated near Oxford, during English author Lazlo Ferran’s extraordinary life, he has been an aeronautical engineering student, dispatch rider, graphic designer, full-time busker, guitarist and singer, recording two albums. Having grown up in rural Buckinghamshire Lazlo says:
“The beautiful Chiltern Hills offered the ideal playground for a child’s mind, in contrast to the ultra-strict education system of Bucks.”
Brought up as a Buddhist, he has travelled widely, surviving a student uprising in Athens and living for a while in Cairo, just after Sadat’s assassination. Later, he spent some time in Central Asia and was only a few blocks away from gunfire during an attempt to storm the government buildings of Bishkek in 2006. He has a keen interest in theologies and philosophies of the Far East, Middle East, Asia and Eastern Europe.
After a long and successful career within the science industry, Lazlo Ferran left to concentrate on writing, to continue exploring the landscapes of truth.

I was first turned on to this author by Too Bright The Sun. It was an action filled Sci Fi read that extends beyond your standard Sci Fi books out there, with a deep and rich level of character development. Iron 2 continues along this vein. We are given new characters who are thrust via time travel into a planet where they have to use their wits to not only survive, but eventually become leaders for a struggling humanoid clan.
In and on itself, it is a good novel, but its main purpose is to focus on introducing us to the Iron series Universe. Here we are shown what the Aliens behind the scenes that caused the conflict in Too Bright The Sun are like, their beliefs, and their menacing intrusion into human affairs. Being able to understand the Alien’s philosophies and true intentions sets us up for what is sure to be a great third volume to the series. Can’t wait for its release.

SF Action and Adventure at its best
Although this is the second part of what promises to be a very exciting trilogy, it is also very much a standalone novel. The best way to describe Iron II is a subtle blending between Stargate and The Flight of the Phoenix. Without giving too much away, the basic plot is about three space academy graduates who crash land on an unknown planet inhabited by primitive humanoid warring tribes. The three’s knowledge of science and technology make them almost godlike in the eyes of the planet’s inhabitants, yet they soon discover that they are not the first beings from the stars to visit here. They befriend one of the tribes and manage to convince them to help with the tremendous task of recovering their space craft from beneath the shifting desert sand. During the course of repairing the ship they undergo many trials and tribulations – some excitingly dangerous whilst others are laugh-out-loud humorous. Lazlo Ferran has managed to create a truly believable scenario of adventure and intrigue that will keep you turning the pages all the way to the end. Recommended!
