Stunningly assured, inventive and intelligent. THE STAR FRACTION is richly readable and riddled with accuracies. The book takes near future fiction into cyberian places it hasn't dared go before. SF bibliographies better take note; grab a first edition now before they disappear; this man is going to be a major writer. ( Iain M. Banks)
He's clever, witty, and his future has just the right grainy feel to it ( SFX)
Prose sleek and fast as the technology it describes ... watch this man go global ( Peter F. Hamilton)
An immensely exciting SF adventure ... The Star Fraction is an auspicious debut ( STARBURST)
The debut novel from a major force in SF, the first of his novels to be shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award.
