It's 2036, twenty-five years after the 'Great Shutdown' destroyed the global communications network. In this post-Internet world, three childhood friends come together to celebrate their fiftieth birthdays. But with Zoja, a radical poet; Evan, an addict theatre director; and Kras, a former minister for war in attendance, this was never going to be a subdued occasion... This hilariously anarchic debut plunges the reader into a world that is at once unthinkable and disturbingly familiar. Alarming, exhilarating and keenly focused on the contradictions of modernity, this is an astounding novel from a powerful new voice.

Tom, Two-Dan $mith (sic) thought his life couldn't get any worse, until a gorgeous alien turns up at his door, and drags him off on a quest to sort out the company responsible for all the troubles in the galaxy. But as is usual with Tom, what glitters is nothing more than polished coal. His guide has another agenda, using him as cannon-fodder. Taken in by her charms, he follows her directions, surviving by sheer luck and circumstance only, to the very end of Time itself, and discovers a confluence of unimaginable universes and an alien plot to take over the lot. If that wasn't bad enough, Tom has to challenge a super-intelligent being, created by a brewing accident and a lot of radiation... and our man's not even sober by now.

The Exile Waiting
The Exile Waiting was the first novel by the Hugo and Nebula award-winning novelist Vonda N McIntyre, published in 1975. It introduces the world that McIntyre later made famous with her multi-award-winning Dreamsnake: a post-apocalyptic world in which Center, an enclosed domed city, is run by slave-owning families who control the planet's resources, and are strangling the city's economy by their decadence. Mischa is a thirteen-year old sneak thief, struggling to support her drug-addict elder brother Chris, and their predatory uncle who uses their telepathic link with their captive younger sister Gemmi to control them. The alien pseudosibs Subone and Subtwo have come to Earth to take over Center's resources. Subone is attracted by the decadent living on offer and begins to unlink from his sibling's conditioning. Subtwo has fallen unexpectedly in love with a slave. When Mischa defends Chris from Subone's malice, Subtwo hunts her beneath Center's foundations, and discovers how terrible Center's cruelty has been to its inhabitants with genetically distorted bodies and minds. They have to rescue them and leave, but how? Also included in this edition, the first republication of McIntyre's short story `Cages', originally published in Quark 4 in 1972, in which she first created the pseudosibs and their terrible origins. Vonda N McIntyre's most well-known novel is Dreamsnake (1978), which won the 1979 Hugo and Nebula awards for Best Novel. She was a biologist by training, and the author of several Star Trek and Star Wars novels and many short stories. Her 1997 novel The Moon and the Sun was filmed in 2013 as The King's Daughter. She died in 2019.

The magnitude of these sudden changes has sent Lucy's mind into shock. As Lucy adjusts to space living, and slowly accepts she is alive and not delusional, she finds herself trying to accept the concept of being a Conrad, a human able to control energy.

If they can't handle Fake News and Brexit, how on Earth can the President and the Prime Minister cope with the arrival of alien empires? The British Prime Minister is contacted by the Gayan star people, who announce that they are planning First Contact between their race and the people of Planet Earth. Luckily, she discovers that the British armed forces have a secret agency ready to handle such an event whilst she is embroiled in Brexit. Soon the President of the United States finds out and wants to take control of the whole situation. Meanwhile the Gayans' enemies also have designs on annexing planet Earth for their Spargar Empire. They send their most feared warrior leader to Earth to settle matters in their favour. Flushing out the Gayan agents who contacted the Prime Minister, he attempts to neutralise them by force or persuasion according to his own rather different agenda. As First Contact draws near, these Gayan and Spargar forces progress their campaigns to gain control of the Earth; for Enlightenment and mutual benefit with the Gayans or annexed as a slave race to the Spargar Empire. Is this the end of mastery of their own world for the people of Earth?

Battle Beyond the Dolestars
Time for the Machine Republic to Kurl Up and Dye It's a year since the Battlestar Suburbia broke free from Earth and the human rebellion is hiding out in the asteroid belt. Their leader, Admiral Janice, is assembling a fleet she hopes can topple robot rule - except on Wednesday afternoons when she can do you a half head of highlights for 30 quid. Janice has given Darren, now the reluctant captain of the teenage starship Polari, a critical mission, to open up a path back to Earth by bombing the Martian Gap Services. But when it goes wrong and Darren and his crew are chased deep into the solar system, Janice has only one hope left, back on Earth. Here, sentient breadmaker Pamasonic Teffal is resisting the human-machine war the best way she knows how: by running for office. Until a distress signal from Janice persuades her to get her turbo-charged alter ego Pam Van Damme out of mothballs, that is... Can Pam save the solar system and rescue Kelly from the clutches of her nemesis, the crazed smartphone-turned-cyborg, Sonny Erikzon? Find out in another anarchic comic adventure from the inimitable Chris McCrudden. What readers are saying: I loved this book. I legit laughed through the entire novel and I am excited that there will be a sequel. Terra C A brilliant mix of sci-fi, humor, and those hundreds of little things that make a memorable story. McCrudden is destined to become synonymous with great sci-fi humor. Christopher H A deliciously hilarious romp which skirts the realms of credibility but provides a wild ride which kept me very much entertained throughout. It's bonkers, it's mad and .... so exaggerated to almost be genius in its execution. Kath B Featuring a kindly bread-maker, ancient nana-cyborgs, a moving hairdressers and a chance to avert a nuclear bomb, it's both great fun and very clever. Ruth M Battlestar Suburbia highlights the absurdity of life, and the adaptability of individuals in unusual situations. McCrudden's novel will appeal to fans of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, or anyone looking for an escape only loosely connected to reality. Stephenie S This was a trip! Some great one-lines & puns help create this future world where the machines have taken over. With evil smartphones, anti-hero humans, & a motherly bread maker pushed to the edge... Caroline F Editorial reviews: Chris McCrudden has created a new division of SF: Science Flotsam. His sprawling space epic is what you get if you cross Dr Who with an unhealthy fascination for household appliances. Forget alien invasion; in this explosive future you won't be able to trust your spin dryer. Christopher Fowler McCrudden's debut is festooned with cunning punnery, sharp turns of phrase, and jokes about emojis and the internet, making this very much a comic novel of our times. James Lovegrove, Financial Times an amusing and mind-bending read... different, a little geeky, and lots of fun. LoveReading An extraordinary technical achievement that does for SF what Terry Pratchett did for fantasy. David Quantick
