The high-powered sequel to Veteran sees an unlikely hero make an even more unlikely return to take the reader back into a vividly rendered bleak future. But a bleak future where there are still wonders: man traveling out into the universe, Bladerunneresque cities hanging from the ceilings of vast caverns, aliens that we can barely comprehend. Gavin Smith writes fast-moving, incredibly violent SF thrillers but behind the violence and the thrills lies a carefully thought out story and characters who have far more to them than first meets the eye. Never one to avoid controversy, Gavin Smith nevertheless invites you to think beyond the initial shock of what you have just read. But in the meantime? Another fire-fight, another chase, and another flight of imagination.

Gavin Smith was born in Dundee he now lives in Leicester. With a degree in Media Production (specializing in script writing) and a MA in Medieval history, he is the worst person in the world to watch a historical movie with. Fortunately he may just be the best person to write the next book you read if you love violent SF thrillers that crank up the fun with the body-count and keep you thinking. He owns his own marketing company.Review:
"If you've ever read any Richard Morgan you will be in familiar territory, only this feels darker, grittier, louder and more grounded than Morgan's work . . . I have no hesitation in recommending Veteran." —SF Book Reviews on Veteran
"As for SF supposedly being a dying genre; that's hard to accept when SF debuts of this quality are being published. Highly recommended." —Speculative Horizons on Veteran
