Neal Asher


UK flag (b.1961)

Neal Asher lives sometimes in England, sometimes in Crete and mostly at a keyboard. Having over eighteen books published he has been accused of overproduction (despite spending far too much time ranting on his blog, cycling off fat, and drinking too much wine) but doesn’t intend to slow down just yet.

Neal Asher recommends
thumb
Tomorrow Factory (2018)
Rich Larson
"Enjoyably twisty SF tales with an ample serving of weird tech (and the way it distorts the people who use it). I’ll be looking out for more from Rich Larson."
thumb
Artefact (2015)
(Lazarus War, book 1)
Jamie Sawyer
"A hostile race of alien biomechs somewhat in the mould of H. R. Giger aliens . . . terrorism, subterfuge and traitors . . . starships sporting particle beam weapons, railguns the size of skyscrapers, laser batteries, missiles . . . And then there are the uber-human super-soldiers clad in powered armour and wielding plasma weapons . . . Is that enough for you? . . . This, dear readers, is the good stuff. Recommended."
thumb
Reviver (2013)
(Reviver trilogy, book 1)
Seth Patrick
"An excellent combination of Afterlife and CSI that’ll keep you up late with the lights very definitely on . . . Highly recommended."
