9780099516026: Martin Martin's On the Other Side

The future ain't what it used to be...

Jensen interceptor is a man on a mission. Promoted to the lofty ranks of government spy - though he's not quite sure why - his first assignment is to monitor the Martin Martinists, a suspected terrorist cult who believe that, way back in 2008, a TV psychic called Martin Martin was the saviour. As Jensen infiltrates the cell he finds his ideas about life and love being challenged, and when he starts to receive bizarre visions which may or may not be coming from Martin Martin himself, his world is turned literally upside down...

Review:

"A dark, brilliantly funny satire from a maverick new talent who clearly has a lot to say about these interesting times we live in" ( Guardian)

"Utterly insane... Wernham is full of ideas, and the completely mad plot pulls together nicely" ( Observer)

"Mark Wernham is telling us something about our society... A cut above the average.. impressively macabre" ( Mail on Sunday)

"This excellent dystopian debut fuses elements of A Clockwork Orange, in its parallel universe vernacular, and 1984, with its prime ministerial dictatorship of Unity and Success" ( Arena)

"Look away now, Mark Wernham has seen the future, and it's stupid" ( Independent)

Review:

`enjoyable, raises plenty of smiles if not outright laughs, and marks the emergence of a talented new voice'
