As I launch Dog Eat Dog, the first novel to be set within the post-apocalyptic world of Yellow Dawn; I’m releasing my back catalogue of novels set in the shared universe of the world before the cataclysmic events of Yellow Dawn take place. As a sweetner, I’m offering some tasty discounts on the normal publisher price. The third chunk of new fiction to be re-released is the cyberpunk horror (on snow): EDGE
EDGE: In the near future, the inventor of a revolutionary new technology is close to burn out as he pushes his creation to the next level. Desperate for a break, with his personal life close to total atrophy, he grabs an opportunity to go snowboarding in New Zealand, thinking it will refresh his mind and spirit.
But a malign and alien force is oozing back into our reality, squirming across untold cosmic distances, crawling through foul dimensions of madness beyond our perception; sentient, older than humankind and growing strong as it emerges after centuries of absence.
Zen Dow snowboarding and ski resort, perched in the foothills of the volcanic mountain Ruapehu, is about to experience mind-shredding consequences as one of the Great Old Ones returns, radiating a malevolent and corruptive energy.
On the other side of the world, an unscrupulous concept scout is witness to a shocking murder; sensing an opportunity, he scrambles onto the trail of a new technology that has vanished from the corporate R&D labs, and the scientist in charge. Quickly out of his depth, it becomes a race to track down the missing components and the person responsible, before competing corporate agents capture and kill him.
David J Rodger’s trademark gut-wrenching rendering of an extreme reality, and relentless narrative pace, are here in palm-sweating abundance, delivered in a tense action-packed novel that blends corporate espionage, with a creeping, spine-chilling horror.
