About the Author

Oliver Langmead was born in Edinburgh and lives in Glasgow. He has an LLB in Law, and an MLitt in Writing Practice and Study with a distinction, and is currently working towards an MLitt in Fantasy. His first book, Dark Star, featured in the Guardian's Best Books of 2015.


This is a debut from Langmead and wow what a debut ... It is a remarkable read, and an easy one. The dark city is an eerie backdrop, filled with ghosts (literally) and shadow, a compelling setting richly invoked by the writing. There is a deft world-building at work in here and a riveting story. **** -- Peter Sutton
Langmead's achievement both satisfies starved poetry fans and demonstrates an astonishing facility with words and storytelling. Either way, it's a kick-ass story. **** -- Tracie McBride
Dark Star is one of those gems that creeps up and takes you by surprise. Beautifully written, masterfully plotted, and built around a character that is at once a complete stranger and an old friend. In short, a masterpiece. **** -- Matt Craig
Truly fresh and original (at least I have never read such a science fiction story before), Dark Star is an engaging, visual story that forces the reader into a slightly different vein of reading experience-one they will undoubtedly emerge from with neon glowing in their eyes. Perfectly paced and structured yet in a form virtually unknown to the genre, Dark Star is detective noir for the 21st century. ****
