STAR RATINGS GUIDE

Imagine Mark and Jez of Peep Show living their best/worst lives in a futuristic, post-apocalyptic hellscape with monsters and mutants. That just about covers it...

THE BIRDICT

💜 Dystopia and Satire Are Ideal Cellmates In This Quirky Tale. Dark, funny, full of twists and turns, this is both dystopia and satire beautifully blended. Then transported to a futuristic wasteland to be imprisoned in the worst place imaginable.

💚 I was completely charmed by all the characters and enthralled by the plot. Highly recommended with one caveat - it is slightly longer than it possibly should have been, but hey, more to love.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 David Thorpe's dry, pensive performance made me smile throughout. He has a marked talent for understatement, such that he can make a story about a murderous monster sound no more gritty than an anecdote about cheese.

Cage of Souls

THE BLURB

The sun is bloated, diseased, dying perhaps. Beneath its baneful light, Shadrapar, last of all cities, harbours fewer than 100,000 human souls. Built on the ruins of countless civilisations, Shadrapar is a museum, an asylum, a prison on a world that is ever more alien to humanity. Bearing witness to the desperate struggle for existence between life old and new is Stefan Advani: rebel, outlaw, survivor. This is his testament, an account of the journey that took him into the blazing desolation of the western deserts and into the labyrinths and caverns of the underworld. He will meet with monsters and mutants. The question is, which one of them will inherit this Earth?

Humanity clings to life on a dying Earth.

Epic, far-future science fiction from an award-winning author. (less)
