Equations of Life

By Simon Morden (Mass Market, 2011)
Winner of the 2012 Philip K. Dick Award

Samuil Petrovitch is a survivor.

He survived the nuclear fallout in St. Petersburg and hid in the London Metrozone - the last city in England. He's lived this long because he's a man of rules and logic.

For example, getting involved = a bad idea.

But when he stumbles into a kidnapping in progress, he acts without even thinking. Before he can stop himself, he's saved the daughter of the most dangerous man in London.

And clearly saving the girl = getting involved.

Now, the equation of Petrovitch's life is looking increasingly complex.

Russian mobsters + Yakuza + something called the New Machine Jihad = one dead Petrovitch.

But Petrovitch has a plan - he always has a plan - he's just not sure it's a good one.

  • "With Equations Of Life, Morden has got hold of the comfortable old beta-tested cyberpunk genre by the scruff of its digital neck and released it in a smooth alpha version ready to take on all comers in the new age.  I never thought I'd want to know what happens next to a smart-mouth anti-hero heart-attack victim in a ruined Metrozone city - but I do." --- Peter F. Hamilton

    "Small, immoral, likeably unlikeable, Petrovitch steps fully formed onto the neon slick streets of London as if on the run from a classic anime..." --- Jon Courtenay Grimwood, award-winning author of the Arabesk Trilogy

  • "Focused, fun, tale of heroes and gangster villains with a huge SF heart...only the start to something bigger (Gav Reads).
