Uncorrected Proof Copy: Dan Abnett - already a very well known and prolific author of comics and whose WarHammer books have sold by the bucketload, offered up an interesting Elizabethan themed fantasy via Angry Robot last year in Triumff: Her Majesty's Hero. A second in that series in in the pipeline, but meantime there is Embedded - a piece of hard-core military science fiction of the kind he is perhaps best associated with. Due from Angry Robot in April.
"The colony planet of Eighty-Six looks as dull as all its fellow new worlds to veteran journalist Lex Falk, but when a local squabble starts to turn violent, and the media start getting the runaround from the military high command, his interest is seriously piqued.
Forbidden from approaching the battlezone, he gets himself chipped inside the head of a combat veteran – and uncovers the story of a lifetime. When th esoldier is killed, however, Falk must use all his resourcefulness to get back home again… and blow the lid off the whole damn thing."
