Description

The Empire State is the other New York

It's a parallel-universe, Prohibition-era world of mooks and shamuses that is the twisted magic mirror to our bustling Big Apple. It's a city where sinister characters lurk around every corner while the great superheroes who once kept the streets safe have fallen into deadly rivalries and feuds. Not that its colourful residents know anything about the real New York until detective Rad Bradley makes a discovery that will change the lives of all its inhabitants.

Playing on the classic Gotham conventions of the Batman comics and HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," debut author Adam Christopher has spun a smart and fast-paced superhero-noir adventure that will excite genre fans and general readers alike.

A fascinating debut novel that meshes noir sensibilities and science fiction together, and keeps the reader guessing throughout. Mike Stackpole, bestselling author of "I, Jedi"

Destined to be a science fiction classic, "Empire State" is a breathtakingly original noir tale of intrigue, mystery, and quantum physics. Diana Rowland, author of "My Life as a White Trash Zombie"




About the Author
Adam Christopher was born in Auckland, New Zealand. In 2006, he moved to the sunny North West of England, where he lives in domestic bliss with wife and cat in a house next to a canal. Adam's short fiction has appeared in Pantechnicon, Hub, and Dark Fiction Magazine. When not writing Adam can be found drinking tea and obsessing over Dark Shadows, DC Comics, and 1960s Doctor Who. Adam is also very bad at epee but knows that Thibault cancels out Capa Ferro, unless the enemy has studied his Agrippa. Which he has.
