Alex Lamb signing Roboteer

at our London Megastore

ALEX LAMB will be signing ROBOTEER at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 22nd July from 6 – 7pm!


Set in a future in which the colonization of the stars has turned out to be anything but easy, and civilization on Earth has collapsed under the pressure of relentless mutual terrorism, small human settlements cling to barely habitable planets. Without support from a home-world they have had to develop ways of life heavily dependent on robotics and genetic engineering. Then out of the ruins of Earth's once great empire, a new force arises - a world-spanning religion bent on the conversion of all mankind to its creed. It sends fleets of starships to reclaim the colonies. But the colonies don't want to be reclaimed. Mankind's first interstellar war begins. It is dirty, dangerous and hideously costly. The Earthers have deployed a devastating new weapon. Only one outworlder ship can be spared to investigate this new threat. And on board, his mind linked to the ship’s drones and weaponry, is their brand new Roboteer.

Alex Lamb splits his time between writing science fiction, software engineering, teaching improvised theatre, running business communication skills workshops, and conducting complex systems research. He lives in Santa Cruz, CA with his wife, Genevieve Graves, an astrophysicist, and his young son, Thorfinn.
