Neal Asher will be signing his new sci-fi novel, Line War, at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 5th April 2008 1-2pm.
Neal was born in Billericay and started writing SF and Fantasy at age sixteen. After a range of jobs that landed him in the machine industry, he began the Hadrim trilogy, and wrote his first version of Fool's Mate. Neal's works include Gridlinked, The Skinner, The Line of Polity, Cowl, Brass Man, The Voyage Of The Sable Keech and Hilldiggers.
Line War is the fifth novel in his Agent Cormac series.
The Polity is under attack from a 'melded' AI entity with control of the lethal Jain technology, yet the invasion seems to have no coherence. Further seemingly indiscriminate slaughter ensue and Ian Cormac is sent to investigate but he’s struggling to control a new ability no human should possess. What’s happening could bring about the end of the Polity itself.
