Read An Exclusive Extract from The Promise Of The Child

promise of the childWe’re delighted to be able to present an exclusive extract from Tom Toner’s fantastic debut novel; the wild and wonderful space opera that is The Promise of the Child.

Scott Lynch meets Gene Wolfe anyone?

Or how about Tom’s own description? “It’s a blend of space opera and fantasy, set in the 147th century, with tin spaceships and singing sea monsters and horrible giants.”

Or Gareth Powell’s? “An amazing debut. Intriguing, disorientating. Like Hannu Rajaniemi’s The Quantum Thief or Moorcock’s Dancers At The End Of Time, it’s told with the heightened vibrancy of a fable, and the melancholic sense of age and decadence so prevalent in Vance’s Emphyrio.”

And then there’s the advance praise from Adam Roberts, Karl Schroeder, Mike Martinez and many more.

Either way we think Tom has come up with something pretty special. And now here’s your chance to get a taste of it yourself.

Do let us know what you think.
