Kéthani is now out from Solaris, featuring a breathtaking cover by John Harris.
Saturday the 10th saw me signing copies at Forbidden Planet, London, and I’d like to thank everyone who turned up. Especially nice to meet SF writer Nigel Brown – no relation – and old friends Keith Brooke and Josh Lacey.
Kéthani has been described by one reviewer as the most benign alien invasion story ever written, which is a pretty good description of the novel. It’s about the eponymous Kéthani and their gift to humanity: immortality – and how this changes everything we’ve ever taken for granted. It’s a quiet, unsensational story of a group of friends in a small West Yorkshire village, and how they react to the coming of the Kéthani.
