Product Description

Product Description

Welcome to the Metrozone - post-apocalyptic London of the future. Whilst the rest of Britain has devolved to anarchy, the M25 cordon protects a decaying city filled with homeless refugees, street gangs, exiled yakuza, crooked cops and mad cults. And something else; something new and dangerous.


Enter Samuil Petrovitch: a Russian émigré with a smart mouth, a dodgy heart and a dodgier past. He's brilliant, friendless, cocky and - armed only with a genius-level intellect, prototype cyberware and a prodigious vocabulary of Russian swear words - might just be most unlikely champion a city has ever had.


Welcome to the future. Mind the gap.


This omnibus edition contains EQUATIONS OF LIFE, THEORIES OF FLIGHT and DEGREES OF FREEDOM

More About the Author

Gateshead-based Dr Simon Morden trained as a planetary geologist, realised he was never going to get into space, and decided to write about it instead. His writing career includes an eclectic mix of short stories, novellas and novels which blend science fiction, fantasy and horror, a five-year stint as an editor for the British Science Fiction Association, a judge for the Arthur C Clarke Awards, and regular speaking engagements at the Greenbelt arts festival.

Simon has written eight novels and novellas. The wonderfully tentacular Another War (2005), was shortlisted for a World Fantasy Award, and 2007 saw the publication of The Lost Art, which was shortlisted for the Catalyst Award. The first three books starring everybody's favourite sweary Russian scientist, Samuil Petrovitch (Equations of Life, Theories of Flight, Degrees of Freedom) were published in three months of each other in 2011, and collectively won the Philip K Dick Award - the fourth Petrovitch, The Curve of the Earth, was published in 2013.

In a departure to the usual high-tech mayhem, 2014 sees the arrival of Arcanum, a massive (and epic) alternate-history fantasy, which not only has flaming letters on the cover, but the story inside is "enthralling", "intelligent", "impeccably rendered" (Kirkus), and "engrossing", "satisfying" and "leaving the reader craving for more (Publishers' Weekly). Which is nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars good stuff 7 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like Iain M. Banks, or Cory Doctorow, you might like this as much as I did. Has a bit of a low in book 2, iirr, but overall he's got a great vision, a convincing creation, and is a good story teller. The next book in the series is good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Want to learn to swear in Russian? 24 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought the trilogy rather than just the first book, wondering if I had made a mistake. Definitely not. As soon as I finished it I bought the next book too.

Petrovitch is a damaged hero, but a hero with a heart. Hiding out in the London metropolis from a past he wants to forget, a random act of kindness exposes him to law, mob and corporation, and none of them are friendly. Petrovitch has to change from the quiet theoretical physicist he has become back into the outlaw teen who ran the streets of St Petersberg.

4.0 out of 5 stars Damn fine read! 12 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was something I enjoyed - not to say it wasn't flawed but in the way of a big-explosion-no-brain-action-flick kind of way: damn good fun!

This might be doing it Mr Morden - and Petrovich - a disservice as this is in no way a brainless book - there are ideas aplenty - and it's told in a rollicking good way. I guess it says it all that I devoured these 3 in a few days and immediately bought the next in the sequence (hopefully the first in a second "Petrovhich Trilogy."

If you like your sci-fi gritty and vaguely noir-ish with an anti-hero at centre stage, this is for you.
