Veteran was a slam-bang dive into a violent SF future—now things get serious

Overview

Veteran was a slam-bang dive into a violent SF future—now things get serious

The high-powered sequel to Veteran sees an unlikely hero make an even more unlikely return, in order to take the reader back into a vividly rendered bleak future. But it's a bleak future where there are still wonders: man traveling out into the universe, Blade Runner-esque cities hanging from the ceilings of vast caverns, and aliens that we can barely comprehend. Gavin Smith writes fast-moving, incredibly violent sci-fi thrillers, but behind the violence and the thrills lies a carefully thought-out story and characters who have far more to them than first meets the eye. Never one to avoid controversy, Smith nevertheless invites readers to think beyond the initial shock of what they have just read. But in the meantime? Another fire fight, another chase, and another flight of imagination.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you've ever read any Richard Morgan you will be in familiar territory, only this feels darker, grittier, louder and more grounded than Morgan's work . . . I have no hesitation in recommending Veteran."  —SF Book Reviews on Veteran

"As for SF supposedly being a dying genre; that's hard to accept when SF debuts of this quality are being published. Highly recommended."  —Speculative Horizons on Veteran
