Beneath the unbearable light of the Kefahuchi Tract - a huge, fulminating ocean of radiant energy deep in the galaxy - three objects lie on the barren surface of an asteroid: an abandoned spacecraft, a pair of what look like bone dice, and a human skeleton. What are they, and what do they mean?
This is a major publishing event in the SF world as Mike has not published an SF book for over 20 years. So far the buzz is huge and I have had interest from three major newspapers who want to give it full reviews. Reviews: The IndependentThe GuardianThe Daily TelegraphTLSAmazon.co.ukSFrevu.comSFSiteInfinityPlusWaterstones websiteStarburstDreamwatchSFX 'Light is a novel of visionary power, alert both to the discontents of the modern world and the tubercularcondition of the future.'TLS Interviews:SFXSFRevu.comOutland (Ottakars magazine)The ZoneEnigmaBBC Radio Scotland Book Programme The launch party for Light took place on Tuesday 29th and was attended by the likes of Iain Banks and Muriel Gray, shockingly we even managed to get Lidnsay Duguid from the TLS and Claire Armitstead from The Guardian. It goes to show that SF can get some literary respect!!
