More About the Author

Neal Asher lives sometimes in England, sometimes in Crete and mostly at a keyboard. Having over eighteen books published he has been accused of overproduction (despite spending far too much time ranting on his blog, cycling off fat, and drinking too much wine) but doesn't intend to slow down just yet.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Kirby W. Ubben on 11 Jan. 2007
Format: Paperback
If you've read anything of Mr. Asher's this particular early work will be very much appreciated, and if not, it remains delightfully charming. The tale breaks down to a farmer of the future, dealing with a rat infestation. sounds simple? not so much, actually. these rat's of the farmer Mason have taken a few steps up the evolutionary latter, and aren't particularly interested in being exterminated. Thus, conflict is introduced. Man against Uber rat, tooth and nail (that's a pun, you'll find out.) how *will* they resolve their issues? oddly, the playing field changes dramatically with the introduction of the great equalizer: booze.

If you can find it, it is simply *not* to be missed. You'll find whilst browsing my other reviews, i am a screaming Asher Fanboy, but despite my love for his incredible space opera type books, and far flung future time traveling tales, Mason's Rats holds a special place for me, and i think you'll find, gentle reader,for you as well.
