The Author, Madeline Ashby

Madeline Ashby:
“I’m happy to be writing this novel for Angry Robot. It’s an idea that’s been kicking around in my head for a while, so it’s obviously delightful when someone else enjoys the idea just as much as you do. More importantly, though, I’m happy to be working with them again because they let me be me. Nothing is too dark, too scary, too witty, too sexy, too hard. They’ve had faith in my voice from the beginning, and I found faith in mine as a result.”

 

Lee Harris:
“After only 2 books, Madeline has proven herself to be one of the most exciting new voices in modern science fiction. I consider it an absolute privilege to be working with her on her next two novels.”

 

Company Town

 

They call it Company Town – a Family-owned city-sized oil rig off the coast of the Canadian Maritimes.

Meet Hwa. One of the few in her community to forego bio-engineered enhancements, she’s the last truly organic person left on the rig. But she’s an expert in the arts of self-defence, and she’s been charged with training the Family’s youngest, who has been receiving death threats – seemingly from another timeline.

Meanwhile, a series of interconnected murders threatens the city’s stability – serial killer? Or something much, much worse…?
