In space, nothing goes according to plan…
Fans of SF will love our first book from James Smythe. When journalist Cormac Easton is selected to document the first manned mission into deep space, he dreams of securing his place in history as one of humanity’s great explorers. But as soon as the crew emerge from hypersleep, things start to go terribly wrong and soon Cormac finds himself alone and spiralling towards his own inevitable death … unless he can do something to stop it.
Here are just SOME of the quotes we’ve already had in for it:
“Beautifully written, creepy as hell. The Explorer is as clever in its unravelling as it is breathlessly claustrophobic” Lauren Beukes, Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author of Zoo City
“Dark, cold, claustrophobic, and oh so very scary. The Explorer is literary science fiction at its blackest best” Adam Christopher, author of Empire Stateand Seven Wonders
“The Explorer is smart, scary and seductive. Like its protagonist, it explores the queasy strangeness of space-time, and puts the reader at the heart of a tale of watching and fearing that comes off like a collaboration between Hitchcock and Heinlein. Excellent stuff” Lloyd Shepherd, author of The English Monster
