More About the Author

I'm the author of more than twenty books, including science-fiction, thriller, and crime novels, several collections of short stories, a Doctor Who novella, and an anthology of stories about popular music, which I co-edited with Kim Newman. My fiction has won the Philip K. Dick Memorial Award, the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the John W. Campbell award, the Sidewise Award, the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award, and the British Fantasy Award for best short story.

Before I went over to the dark side and became a full-time writer, I worked as a research biologist in various universities, including Oxford and UCLA, and for six years was a lecturer in botany at St Andrews University. My chief research interest was symbioses between unicellular algae and coelenterates, including green hydra, sea anemones, and reef-forming corals. I'm still a huge fan of all things to do with science, and spend too much time tweeting about weird and wonderful stuff as UnlikelyWorlds; Time magazine listed me as one of their top 140 most interesting tweeters in 2013.

I live in North London, and haven't yet walked down every street in the A-Z. But I'm trying.

Format: Paperback
This was the first of McAuley's novels I read, coming at it as fan of counterfactuals. It's a bit different from many of that genre and set in a period many of us don't know well, but a gripping and intriguing read nevertheless. The basic premise is that Leonardo Da Vinci's futeristic drawings such as helicopters actually work, elevating his city state into industrial revolution and also enhancing the martial aspect. I guess it won't appeal to many, and like his other works demands some concentration, but I really enjoyed it and it has made me a fan of the author.
