British science fiction author David J Rodger holds first copy of the first edition of his new novel
NEWS: I’LL BE GIVING FANS A CHANCE TO WIN THIS COPY, SIGNED, AT THE END OF NOVEMBER 2013. SEE BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS.
If you’ve been following my blog – work in progress – you’ll know I finished the first draft of The Social Club at the start of June. I’ve now completed proofing and the final edit, so this is my first copy to come from LULU. I’ve made a few changes since getting it: my name in orange rather than white with black stroke; a larger monarch butterfly logo and slightly repositioned; plus some tabbing issues that needed fixing in the MS. It makes the copy I’m holding here a rather unique (and collectible?) item.
The Social Club is my 8th novel, and the third to be set within the post-apocalyptic world of Yellow Dawn (sitting alongside “Dog Eat Dog” and “The Black Lake”).
Blurb: The Earth has suffered a cataclysmic event. London survives, but only just, through the authority of the Group that took control nearly ten years ago. When the naked body of a man washes up on the banks of the Thames, the regime in charge tries to dismiss the death as another suicide. Senior Verifier Jadon Purgo has other ideas and as he digs through layers of deceit a gruesome truth begins to emerge…
