Justina Robson is the critically-acclaimed, award-winning author of multiple science fiction novels, including SILVER SCREEN, MAPPA MUNDI, LIVING NEXT DOOR TO THE GOD OF LOVE, NATURAL HISTORY and the Quantum Gravity series.
Justina, who has long been considered ‘a novelist of real vision’ (Zadie Smith), seems to be maintaining this position, if early reviews for GLORIOUS ANGELS are anything to go by…
‘A novel that demands a lot from the reader – but its rewards are immensely satisfying… a slow-burner of a novel, beautifully written, and Robson drip-feeds the world-building and the various plot-strands at a stately pace that picks up to become a taut thriller swimming in high concepts.’ — Independent
‘A showcase for the authors relentless imagination. It tap dances along the lines between genre boundaries, kicking up its heels with a giddy, ferociously smart inventiveness.’ — SFX
