THE STUNNING SEQUEL TO THE A-MEN. This is hardboiled sci-fi action for adult speculative fiction readers, video game players and lovers of future noir literature and films. Four years have passed since the destruction of the Phoenix Tower and with it the infamous A-Men. The once-great Dead City is now a no-go zone; abandoned and forgotten. Living in this nightmarish underworld Jack is a twisted shadow of his former self, a lone survivor in a world of warring ganglords and their crazed disciples. Yet something is stirring in the sanctuary of the near-space starstations; a realisation that its governing sentience is dying and the one thing that can save civilisation fell to earth a long, long time ago. From unrelentingly visceral to outrageously comic, this is a harsh and poetic twenty-second century noir fable. Yet beneath the hardboiled action is a philosophical journey of one man's rebirth in a harsh and unforgiving world. It's The A-Men. Only harder, faster: darker. WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT THE A-MEN "Wow... just wow!" "Fantastic, dark... it grips and doesn't let go. I've never read anything like this. A unique sci fi talent" "Achieves what Gibson can only hint at. Complex, fascinating characters, excellent plot, tense action sequences... all set in a thoroughly credible dystopian wonderland."
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.
