His first novel, a science fiction technothriller entitled Déjà Vu, was published in 2005 by the UKA Press.
The Guardian described it as ‘showing quiet skill’ and SFX called it ‘a solid technothriller’. Author Ian Watson praised it as ‘gripping, fascinating, and powerful’. The book is thriller that encompasses time travel, virtual reality, and digital minds.
‘Ian mentions Jon Courtenay Grimwood and Ken MacLeod in his acknowledgements,’ said John Jarrold. ‘Having had the pleasure of publishing a number of books by them both, I can say that the many readers who love their work will thoroughly enjoy Ian’s writing. Ideas jump off the page, and his characters remain in one’s mind over a long period of time’
Hocking is presently writing another novel in the Déjà Vu universe.
