A cold-case murder enquiry takes a new turn with revelations about an ill-fated expedition to the stars. A genre mash-up in the first full-length novel from long-time collaborators Keith Brooke and Eric Brown: a corporate thriller, a whodunnit, interplanetary SF, and more.
From the publisher:
Brought to Angry Robot by the John Jarrold Literary Agency, we are delighted to welcome Keith Brooke and Eric Brown with Wormhole, an exciting hard SF/crime crossover. With both Keith and Eric well-known and respected throughout the SFF community for many years, as authors and reviewers alike, they have combined to create a gripping cautionary tale within a corporate conspiracy.
Acquiring Editor Simon Spanton: “Keith and Eric have, individually and together, long been producing exciting, yet thoughtful and carefully crafted SF. So to have the opportunity to publish a new book written by them in tandem is a delight. Wormhole is a twisty interstellar journey through a maze of crime and deceit that grabbed me from the first. As billionaires and corporations come to dominate our efforts to explore beyond Earth it’s also a very apposite SF novel.”
Keith Brooke & Eric Brown: “We’ve collaborated on short fiction for many years, but this is the first full-length novel we’ve produced together. We each know exactly how the other writes, so we can work seamlessly together – but also we manage to continually surprise each other so that any collaboration is unlike anything we could write individually.”
John Jarrold, John Jarrold Literary Agency: “I’ve known both Eric and Keith for many years, and loved their science fiction writing. The depth, involvement and great story-telling – and the universe they have created here – are wonderful. SF at its best.”
Wormhole is published by Angry Robot on 22 November 2022.
