That’s the intention.
We launched infinity plus ebooks with sixteen full-length titles in late 2010 and the first few months of 2011, but recently we’ve taken a bit of a break from it so I can concentrate on my new novel. Our current plan is to hit twenty titles by the end of August, with one a week during that month.
The first of the titles we have lined up is Meridian Days by Eric Brown. This was Eric’s first novel and it’s great to be making it available again. Once again, we have a lovely cover by Dominic Harman.
Here’s a bit more blurb about the novel:
Meridian, twenty light years from Earth and with just a tiny scattering of inhabitable islands, seems the perfect place for Bob Benedict to escape the tragedy of his past.
Here he can live out his days in drug abuse, despised by and despising the self-obsessed community of artists who make up the population of the colony planet: the Altereds who have swapped human form for animal, and the Augmenteds who have boosted their minds with computers.
But when Bob meets Fire, the daughter of the formidable Tamara Trevellion, the most ruthlessly ambitious of the artists, he is drawn into a world of corruption and murder that is far darker than his past.
Soon it’s all he can do just to survive…
“British writing with a deft, understated touch: wonderful” – New Scientist
“SF infused with a cosmopolitan and literary sensibility… accomplished and
affecting” – Paul McAuley
“One of the very best of the new generation of British SF writers” – Vector
“Eric Brown has an enviable talent for writing stories which are the essence
of modern science fiction and yet show a passionate concern for the human
predicament and human values” – Bob Shaw
Later in August we’ll be publishing:
- the first ebook edition of Robert Freeman Wexler’s Circus of the Grand Design (“Wexler excels at lucid prose and provocative ideas, giving the Bradbury-ish carnival-comes-to-town theme a new twist and showing promise as an original fantasist” – Booklist)
- John Grant’s Warm Words & Otherwise: A Blizzard of Book Reviews, a bumper collection ‑ over 150,000 words! ‑ of book reviews, many of full essay length, by the two-time Hugo winning and World Fantasy Award-winning co-editor of The Encyclopedia of Fantasy and author, among much fiction, of such recent nonfiction works as Corrupted Science and (forthcoming) Denying Science.
- and another one from Eric Brown, Approaching Omega, described by SF Site as “an action packed novella of humans vs. cyborgs”.
