Angry Robot Author Christopher HinzAuthor of 80s cult classic Liege-Killer and its forthcoming prequel Binary Storm Christopher Hinz will be heading over to Reddit tomorrow (June 8) to take part in an author AMA.

For those who don’t know what an AMA is, it stands for Ask Me Anything and is a chance for fans to ask their favourite authors absolutely anything they’d like…within reason, obviously.

Christopher will be online tomorrow (June 8) from 6-8pm EST. Head on over to r/books to post your questions for him.

Christopher found critical acclaim – and the Compton Crook Award – with Liege-Killer, a sci-fi novel about The Paratwa, genetically-modified telepathically linked twins in a post apocalyptic world. The book was later made into a trilogy and in February Christopher signed with us to publish the series’ prequel, Binary Storm, which will hit shelves in November.

Here’s the synopsis for the new book:

Near the end of the 21st century, Earth is in chaos from environmental devastation and a vicious undeclared war against binaries, genetically engineered assassins. Composed of a single consciousness inhabiting two human bodies (tways), binaries are ruled by an alpha breed, the Royal Caste.

Nick Smith, computer programmer and brilliant strategist, hooks up with Annabel Bakana, the savvy new director of E-Tech, an organization dedicated to limiting runaway technological growth. Together both romantically and professionally, they secretly assemble a small combat team to hunt and kill binaries.

But there’s a fly in the ointment, the mysterious team leader, Gillian. A tormented soul with an unseemly attraction to Annabel, his actions just might help the Royal Caste’s cause and draw the world closer to Armageddon.

Serving as both a stand-alone novel and prequel to Liege-Killer, Binary Storm is a futuristic tale of bold characters pushed to the brink in a dangerous world. Startling action, political intrigue and powerful themes that echo our contemporary era are fused into a plot brimming with twists and surprises.

Excited? We most definitely are! Until then, head over to the AMA!
