About the Author
David M Henley loves science, science fiction and the future. His books are inspired by authors such as Philip K Dick, Peter F Hamilton, Robert Heinlein and Matsumune Shirow.
His breakout trilogy, The Hunt for Pierre Jnr, is fast like a comic book, strange as an anime and set in as complex a world as the one we live in today (but 150 years in the future!). Fifty years after a second dark age that nearly destroyed humankind, the World Union is now confronted with a new threat that doesn’t just challenge their survival but also the nature of life and civilisation itself. Henley’s world explodes with ideas about humanity and what is changing between the possible and the impossible.
From geopolitical convergence to emergent online super organisms, the future is coming. Henley’s books explore themes of technological evolution, species diversification and takes the ‘all-powerful creepy child’ theme to a scary new level.
