The Curve of The Earth

The Curve of The Earth

Welcome to the Metrozone – post-apocalyptic London of the Future, full of homeless refugees, street gangs, crooked cops and mad cults. Enter Samuil Petrovitch: a Russian émigré with a smart mouth, a dodgy heart and a dodgier past. He’s brilliant, selfish, cocky and might just be most unlikely champion a city has ever had. Armed with a genius-level intellect, extensive cybernetic replacements, a built-in AI with god-like capabilities and a plethora of Russian swearwords – he’s saved this city from ruin more than once. He’s also made a few enemies in the process – Reconstruction America being one of them. So when his adopted daughter Lucy goes missing, he’s got a clue who’s responsible. And there’s no way he can let them get away with it.

Praise

"This is British sci-fi at its hard-boiled best, and it's worth reading just for the irascible Petrovitch: a diplomat lacking diplomacy, who delights in confronting the idiocy of the world around him."—The Guardian on The Curve of the Earth
"Morden has built a fully realized, believable, post-apocalyptic world and populated it with full-bodied characters... He's also completely engaging and so compelling you don't dare look away from him, for fear you might miss something."—Booklist (Starred Review)
"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 on Equations of Life
"Off the wall, as any good science fiction should be."—Sunday Business Post Magazine
