A fast-paced, sci-fi thriller from a stunning new British talent.
Mike Brooks was born in Ipswich, England, and moved to Nottingham,
England to study at Nottingham Trent University and never left.
He started to write stories and novels in childhood, has worked for a homelessness charity since 2004 and when not working or writing he goes walking in the Peak District, sings and plays guitar in a punk band, and DJs wherever anyone will tolerate him.
He is married, and has two cats and a snake.
"Mike Brook's Dark Run is a rambunctious, rapidfire rollercoaster
of a read. Get signed up and strapped in for a helluva ride!" --
Michael Cobley * author of the Humanity's Fire series. *
"Great fun . . . Golden Age chic!" -- Stephen Baxter
"Brooks's terrific debut demonstrates that a good caper tale can take place anywhere, even in interstellar space ... Fans of rip-roaring space adventures will greatly enjoy this one." * Publisher's Weekly *
"Dark Run is a thrill-ride of non-stop action, wise-crackery and adventure in the vast vaults of outer space. I look forward to revisiting Ichabod Drift and the crew of the Keiko time and again..." -- Luke Scull
"...if you're looking for a Firefly-like tale, filled with characters like Damian Frey and the crew of the Ketty Jay, you won't be disappointed with this one. A quick read, but an immensely entertaining one." * http://www.sffworld.com/ *
