About the Author
Steve Wilson is a classic motorcycle and car journalist, as well as the author of 19 books. The last one, Short Way Up, concerned a 5,000-mile solo ride he took on a 55-year-old British bike in Southern Africa. The Lost Traveller was the first of his five novels, and an acknowledged classic.
Top Customer Reviews
But most importantly it was wonderful to revisit this vivid post-apocalyptic world, to spend some more time with Long Range and his posse, and to find that the novel has really stood the test of time. Everything I'd enjoyed about it as a teenager I still enjoyed - the setting, the characters, the action, the wonderful mix of sci-fi and western, etc. But reading it now I found an added depth - a mysticism and lyricism which was perhaps lost on me before.
Welcome back Long Range.
And thanks, Steve Wilson, for this awesome epic.
When are they gonna make the movie?
Steve Wilson is a very talented wordsmith, and develops the scenarios, and paints the characters so skilfully that you really feel you are there with them. There aren’t many books about the Hell’s Angels, and certainly none better than this, but as you can imagine when Steve turns his attention to the cult activities some of it is not for the faint hearted! It is so well researched that you feel sure that Steve must have been immersed in it himself; he certainly seems to know what he is talking about.
A quarter million readers can’t be wrong. There is a very good reason why this book has been republished after a gap of 35 years. Once you have read it, you will be looking out for Steve Wilson’s name again.
So impressed with this young author's debut I have sought out and enjoyed his subsequent stories all have which have proved to be equally thrilling and engrossing.
