Fasten your seat-belts. After some delays, Richard Morgan's brand new novel Black Man has finally hit the book stores. Morgan has risen through the ranks of genre hierarchy and is now deservedly regarded as one of the biggest names around. Click on the titles for my reviews of Morgan's Altered Carbon, Broken Angels, Market Forces and Woken Furies - and here you can read my exclusive interview with the author at the time of his first novel.
Black Man (Published by Del Rey in the US in June under the title Thirteen) is described as "... an unstoppable SF thriller but it is also a novel about prejudice, about the ramifications of playing with our genetic blueprint. It is about our capacity for violence but more worryingly, our capacity for deceit and corruption."
