Hi, I love reading your books–started with Empire State, and picked up The Burning Dark just today. I’m sorry that Angry Robot used the wrong last name for Ted on the back cover of the US edition of the book (don’t know if the UK edition had the same mistake. I had a question about one line in Hang Wire that caught my attention, which probably went over the heads of almost everyone. In Chapter XI, second paragraph (page 122 in US Edition), was the comment about super-intelligent tigers a reference to the Jack Kirby DC comic Kamandi? That immediately popped into my head when I first read it.
BTW, you are one of the few authors that I will pick up any new books written by without any hesitation…other authors in that list include Adam Roberts, Alistair Reynolds, Peter Hamilton, and the late Iain Banks.
Thanks Lou! Very glad you are enjoying the books. And yes, that is a little Kamandi reference 😉
Adam, just finished the ebook version of Burning Dark and I loved it!
Is there any way to buy a signed copy?
Can’t wait for the next one!
I just emailed you!
I had just started “The Burning Dark”, when I stumbled on a short video in Vimeo ( http://vimeo.com/channels/staffpicks/106216724 )
after reading a few more chapters, the hair went up on my neck.
Halfway through now, enjoying the chills.
Just a wild thought here, Adam, but do all of your books take place in the same universe? In Empire State there are the superhero’s Skyguard and Science Pirate, in Seven Wonders, Skyguard II makes a brief cameo when all of the heroes are assembled in the moon base, and Haephestus is an ancient Greek God, Robert in Hangwire is an ancient Hawiian God (tenuous links I know). Then by extension of that, does the power core and war with the Thauban in Seven Wonders provide humanity with the space faring empire building technology present in the spider wars? the link there being the psi-marines (descendants of Aurora and bluebell?) and the alternate dimensions where Izanami comes from? I haven’t read Made to Kill as yet so don’t know what the link there would be. Don’t know if i’m doing the typical English Graduate thing here and reading far too much into this mind…
My son bought me Blood and Ink at the Phoenix Comicon, but I didn’t realize you were there until the following day when I caught you on a panel. It was a pleasure to meet you (sort of meet), but bad luck on the timing–I would have liked to get it signed. Anyway, I enjoyed the novel, and I’m looking forward to Empire State, which is what I’m gonna try next. Looks awesome. Here’s to your continued good success and many more books.
Thanks Richard! I’m sure I’ll be around PHXCC in the future… bring the book back and I can sign it then 😉
Hey Adam, I really enjoyed reading Seven Wonders. I am currently writing my own superhero genre book and was wondering if you had any advice? Thanks again for the brilliant story.
Very glad you enjoyed it. The only advice I can give is to write the story you want to write. I wanted to write an epic Silver Age crossover event in novel form, and that gave me Seven Wonders. If you understand superheroes, I’m sure you’ll be fine!
