About the Author

Thomas M. Disch is the author of more than twenty books and twelve collections of poetry. He is widely regarded as one of the masters of twentieth-century science fiction, and received the 1999 Hugo Award for The Dreams Our Stuff Is Made Of: How Science Fiction Conquered the World. He died in 2008.


Disch's 1967 sf novel was the basis for the cult favorite TV show of the same name. A secret agentDknown only as Number 6Ddecides to quit the spy game. However, one morning he wakes up in a pleasant seaside town in which he is essentially a prisoner to his former employers. The old TV series still has a following, and there's talk of a feature film adaptation with Russell Crowe. Note that ibooks also offers Robert Fairclough's The Prisoner: The Official Companion to the Classic TV Series (ISBN 0-7434-5256-9), which comes bundled with a DVD of the show's first episode.

One of the most remarkably talented writers around * Washington Post *
[This novel is] closely based on the extraordinary TV series, far and away the finest thing the medium has done in this genre; while Disch himself is one of the best SF writers * Observer *
McKellen delivers a riveting performance as the fear-inducing Number Two. This remake is smart and quick, and succeeds in ways that the original did not. There's more urgency to the storytelling, and a faster pace - accelerating the viewing thrill. * The Telegraph *
