Review

Something Coming Through is as tight and relentlessly paced as an Elmore Leonard thriller, and full of McAuley's customary sharp eye for dialogue and action. What's really impressive, though, is that it achieves a seamless fusion of the day-after-tomorrow SF novel - it's as interested in gritty Earthbound near-futurism as William Gibson or Lauren Beukes - with the cosmological themes of McAuley's galaxy-spanning space operas. It's the freshest take on first contact and interstellar exploration in many years, and almost feels like the seed for an entire new subgenre (Alistair Reynolds)

Highly recommend everybody buy Something Coming Through because it is great (Pat Cadigan)

McAuley's latest is smart, it's challenging, and as an exploration of the social consequences of sudden science fictional change, it's very impressive indeed (SFX)

The action, slow to get going, builds to a dramatic climax of chases and shoot-outs. Crime-tinged SF at its canniest. (The Financial Times)

What really lifts the book out of the ordinary though, is the Jackaroo...The Jackaroo are an enduring mystery that will get readers back for the next instalment. (The Register)

It's difficult to find fault with this book - there are a strong cast of characters, enigmatic aliens, a well-woven crime plot and an interesting focus (Fantasy Book Review)

It's instantly gripping and Paul goes a long way to slowly ease new readers into his strange and wonderful Jackaroo... I already know that "Something Coming Through" will be one of my favourite books of the year. It finds McAuley at the top of his powers - mind-bending, inspiring and very very exciting (Upcoming 4 Me)

Full of exciting plot twists and an intriguing mix of human and non-human chracters, this murder mystery set up in a dystopian is future history at its very best (Starburst Magazine)

Packed with ideas, fantastic world-building and enigmas, and combining elements of first contact, alien artifacts, a touch of dystopia and good old fashioned conspiracy, murder and greed. It's a great combination, all handled with a terrific mix of intelligence and accessibility (For Winter's Nights)

a compelling and realistically imagined piece of speculative fiction anchored be weighty contemporary concerns (The Irish Times)

Book Description

One of our finest SF writers moves closer to home. London is devastated. New worlds are being explored. And the aliens have arrived ...
