VETERAN was a slam-bang dive into a violent SF future. Now things get serious.
Gavin Smith was born in Dundee and now lives in Leicester. With a degree in Media Production (specialising in script writing) and a MA in Medieval history he is the worst person in the world to watch a historical movie with. Fortunately he may just be the best person to write the next book you read if you love violent SF thrillers that crank up the fun with the body-count and keep you thinking. He owns his own marketing company.
Gavin Smith's writing is a brutal kaleidoscope of imagination, with
the raw energy of a heavy metal album cover: equally dazzling with
bloodthirsty ancient Picts and the fallen post-humans of tomorrow.
-- Hannu Rajaniemi, author of The Causal Angel
Age Of Scorpio announces loud and clear that in Gavin Smith an exceptional talent has arrived to uplift SF. The book is a master class of twisting plot lines that celebrate both the weird and astounding, amid a future that's deeply unnerving yet equally compelling. -- Peter F Hamilton
