Launching Gareth L Powell's Hive Monkey
Gareth L Powell will be launching HIVE MONKEY, the sequel to the hugely successful ACK-ACK MACAQUE, at the Forbidden Planet Bristol Megastore on Saturday 14th December from 1 – 2pm!
“…an explosive narrative with brilliant cliffhangers” – The Guardian on Ack-Ack Macaque
In order to hide from his unwanted fame as the Spitfire pilot-monkey who emerged from a computer game to defeat the nefarious corporation that engineered him, the charismatic and dangerous Ack-Ack Macaque is working as a pilot on a world-circling nuclear-powered Zeppelin.
But when the cabin of one of his passengers is invaded by the passenger’s own dying doppelganger, our hirsute hero finds himself thrust into a race to save the world from an aggressive hive mind, time-hopping saboteurs, and an army of homicidal Neanderthal assassins!
Gareth L Powell is the author of the SF novel Silversands and the critically acclaimed short story collection The Last Reef. His work has been published all over the world and featured in a number of recent anthologies including Shine. Gareth lives in the West Country with his wife and two daughters.
