David Simpson is destined for cult status.
on 13 October 2014
This is the most mind bending science fiction I have read in years. David Simpson writes as if he has decades of experience. It is, frankly hard to believe he has been around for such a short period of time.
I have been an avid reader of both fiction & nonfiction for almost half a century. I have read literally thousands of books in that time. With that level of experience I am not very easily pleased. David Simpson has managed to hook me in like no-one else since the late & very great Iain M Banks.
Although science fiction is my true passion I have not restricted myself to the genre. I have read everything from the historical novels of Bernard Cornwell, through the crime & espionage epics of Robert Ludlum & Clive Cussler, to the social commentaries of George Orwell, Harper Lee & Iain Banks. Suffice it to say, I know a good story teller & indeed a good story when I see one.
The Post-Human series of books is exactly that. This is not simply another one of those run of the mill tales. This is a journey into a whole new realm. This is a vision of what we could become. A dream & a nightmare all at once. With more twists & turns than the Hampton Court Palace maze you will be left guessing at the turn of every page. Once you start you will find it very difficult to stop. As one book finishes you will be grasping for the next installment.
This is just the beginning. David Simpson is destined for cult status. He will be thought of with the same respect & admiration as Asimov, Clarke, Heinlein & Verne. If you doubt my words, just pick up one of his books & try to put it down again.
