We are delighted to reveal the cover for REFRACTION, the new novel from award-winning sci fi author Christopher Hinz, out from Angry Robot this November!
If Aiden Manchester had to have a superpower, why couldn’t it be something useful like predicting the future? Or Jedi mind tricks? Instead, he’s afflicted with manifestations, balls of goo which materialise in midair while he sleeps. But then Aidan learns he was a ‘Quiver Kid’; one of seven orphaned babies drafted for an illicit experiment at Tau Nine-One. Setting out to find the experimenters and his fellow victims, Aiden’s quest turns lethal when he’s kidnapped by a maniacal Quiver Kid with a dark agenda.
As he uncovers dangerous truths about his past, Aiden’s very essence is called into question. Will a hellish confrontation at Tau Nine-One reveal the ultimate purpose of the Quiver Kids?
Christopher Hinz is the author of five science fiction books. Liege-Killer won the Compton Crook Award for best first novel and was nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for best new writer.
