Action thriller, science fiction, horror, historical romance – what kind of author could write them all? The title comes from an early computer-generated poem, so is the author human? Napoleon, ancient Egypt, Scottish punks, zombie monks, a long-lost Marlowe play and an AI database going haywire are just some of the ingredients of this phantasmagoria.

    To begin with, as the Web can be a dodgy place and I deplore the literary tradition of arranging to be published and reviewed by one's friends, may I state that I do not know the author or have any connection with him apart from the purchase of this book. Post-apocalypse has become a popular genre, making it more challenging for each new arrival. For me, 'Day of the Triffids' is one of the yardsticks among works by English authors, and this book is of similar quality, with one or two points of direct comparison. It may suffice to say that I downloaded it, read the sample, bought it and read the rest all in one sitting. It combines a page-turning plot with excellent writing. The style has a sinewy, economical poetry, and the author uses his evident knowledge of weapons, science and English literature to great effect. As well as telling an action story of occupation and resistance, he explores a philosophical argument between Satanic paganism and Christian morality through the conflict between a village dominated by religious fundamentalists and the gang of sadistic thugs who take it over. This novel entertained me as a reader and impressed me with its literary qualities, and I recommend it.
