BFS member and British Fantasy Award winner Conrad Williamsâ€™ new novel Loss of Separation is published by Solaris on 3 March in the UK and in April in the USA and Canada.
â€œCommercial pilot Paul Roan is in command of a Boeing 777 when it is involved in a near miss. Nerves shot, he resigns and re-launches his life running a small hotel in a coastal village with his girlfriend, Tamara. On the day they move to their new home, Paul is hit by a speeding car. Emerging six months later from a coma, he discovers that Tamara has left him, and the villagers, astonished by his cheating of death, now see him as a talisman.
He is suffering from terrible dreams of a crippled black airliner screaming through the night, its pitted engines streaked with carbon and blood. He knows that, somehow, this jet â€“ and its terrible cargo â€“ is coming for him.â€
Also due on 3 March from Solaris is Cloneworld by Andy Remic. Itâ€™s published in the USA and Canada next month.
â€œJunks, an evil alien scourge, are flooding Quad-Gal with terror. Combat K are sent on a mission to find an alien artifact which could win the war all at once.
SLAM-dropped to Cloneworld â€“ a planet ravaged by violent civil war â€“ Combat K get caught in a global conflict between augmented mechanised war machines and genetically-modified humans who have the ability to clone themselves. Combat K must fight their way to victory to save the Four Galaxies.
But how can they possibly succeed, when their main foes are their own elite, deadly clones?â€
