About the Author

Adrian Tchaikovsky was born in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire before heading off to Reading to study psychology and zoology. For reasons unclear even to himself he subsequently ended up in law and has worked as a legal executive in both Reading and Leeds, where he now lives. Married, he is a keen live role-player and occasional amateur actor, has trained in stage-fighting, and keeps no exotic or dangerous pets of any kind, possibly excepting his son. He is the author of the critically acclaimed Shadows of the Apt series, the Echoes of the Fall series, and several standalone novels, including Children of Time, the winner of the 30th Anniversary Arthur C. Clarke Award for Best Science Fiction Novel.

Reviews

All underpinned by great ideas. And it is crisply modern - but with the sensibility of classic science fiction. Asimov or Clarke might have written this -- Stephen Baxter
You know you're in for a ride. . . This book thoroughly engaged me. Children of Ruin is a humdinger of a book I enjoyed immensely -- Neal Asher
Magnificent. This is the big stuff - the really big stuff. Rich in wisdom and Humanity (note the 'H'), with a Stapledonian sweep and grandeur . . . Books like this are why we read science-fiction -- Ian McDonald
Breathtaking scope and vision. Adrian Tchaikovsky is one of our finest writers -- Gareth Powell
Wonderful - big, thinky SF that feels classic without being mired in the past, absolutely crammed with fun ideas . . . Anyone who likes sweeping, evolutionary-scale stories will love this -- Django Wexler
I couldn't put it down. There is an effortless quality to Adrian's writing and you've clearly got another winner on your hands -- James Oswald
My most anticipated book of the year -- Peter F. Hamilton
Brilliant science fiction and far-out world-building -- James McAvoy on Children of Time
A refreshing new take on post-dystopia civilizations, with the smartest evolutionary world-building you'll ever read -- Peter F. Hamilton on Children of Time
Children of Time is a joy from start to finish. Entertaining, smart, surprising and unexpectedly human -- Patrick Ness on Children of Time
This is superior stuff, tackling big themes - gods, messiahs, artificial intelligence, alienness - with brio -- Financial Times on Children of Time
The novel's clever interrogation of the usual narrative of planetary conquest, and its thoughtful depiction of two alien civilisations attempting to understand each other, is an exemplar of classic widescreen science fiction -- New Scientist on Children of Time
Essential science fiction, a book not to be missed -- SFBook on Children of Time
An entertaining and thought-provoking novel of post humanity, survival and legacy . . . Children of Time is an enormously interesting and well drawn SF novel -- SFSignal on Children of Time
