About the Author:

Trevor Hoyle was born in Lancashire, and started out as an actor before moving to the other side of the screen as a full-time writer. His award-winning short fiction and novels range from hard-edged thrillers to comedy to science fiction, including his most recent blockbuster, the eco-thriller The Last Gasp. He has also written for the radio (his first radio play, GIGO, won the Radio Times Drama Award) and TV, including the cult TV series Blake's 7; his bestselling novelisations include Blake's 7, which he co-wrote with Terry Nation, the show's creator, followed by Blake's 7: Project Avalon and Blake's 7: Scorpio Attack.

After travelling the world, he returned to his roots, and once again lives in Lancashire.

Review:

Climate thrillers, let alone good ones, are few and far between ... That's why The Last Gasp is a minor revelation * SciFiNow * The Last Gasp is an immersive apocalyptic science fiction horror thriller that is next to impossible to put down * A Bookish Blog * A prophet of ecological apocalypse and chronicler of imminent chaos . . . an enormously entertaining book * Morning Star * The book is epic . . . At 700 pages it's a mighty tome - and the science, may leave the reader, also gasping for breath. * Starburst Magazine * The Last Gasp by Trevor Hoyle is my risk analysis disaster science fiction book standard of excellence . . . Bizarre and intriguing events, catastrophic consequences, and solutions . . . Engaging. * Michael R Greenberg, Explaining Risk Analysis * If someone had told me I'd find a 722 page novel about climate change and pollution as engrossing as a James Bond novel, I'd have thought they were mad. However Trevor Hoyle's The Last Gasp does just that * Horror Hot House * The author's deftness with character, plot and the conventions of the thriller form is vital to a book of this length and complexity. It maintains narrative momentum and encourages the reader to get to grips with the science behind the story * The Morning Star * Trevor Hoyle has combined Dr Strangelove and Raiders of the Lost Ark and come up with a formula that works like a poisoned charm * New York Daily News * This terrifying vision of the possible near future convincingly shows how drastically things could change in a single generation. A riveting ecological thriller that will have you sighing with relief that it all isn't true - yet * Publisher's Weekly * Superb dialogue, vivid imagination and wry humour . . . The Last Gasp is a landmark in the field of eco-fiction * Washington Post *
