Jack is a man with no memory, awakening in a dark and dangerous metropolis on the eve of its destruction. The only clue to his former life: a handwritten note in the pages of a book of faerie tales entitled Forevermore. Marked for death in a peacekeeping force sent to quell the riots, he finds sanctuary and survival with other renegades on the streets of Dead City. Battling to survive, they form the infamous A-Men, misfits who have a unifying dream: to be special. Yet that is until their paths cross with Dr Nathaniel Glass and his mysterious experiment locked deep beneath the Phoenix Tower.
John Trevillian was born in London, England and spent his childhood with a Smith-Corona Calypso typewriter and a wild imagination, both of which he still owns, in an unremarkable house in an unremarkable street. He now lives in Talliston; again in an unremarkable street, but this time a remarkable house.
Most of his earliest recollections centre around devising stories and games with his brother and of typing and drawing his own versions of the children's books he devoured. At secondary school he began his first novel, the Stephen Donaldson inspired fantasy, The Mortal And His God, and went on to use his love of world myths and faerie tales to launch AEs, an award-winning interactive writing game. Winner of best new game in the UK, this interactive story grew into the AEs Society, an international group of shared-world authors and writers. Covering the fantasy, horror, dark future and urban soap genres, the society created over two million words of collaborative fiction.
This is where the A-Men adventures began, as a dark and dirty short story titled The Wasters. From that gritty nucleus grew the trilogy of The A-Men,
The A-Men Return and Forever A-Men.
