Zero Bomb

Zero Bomb M. T. Hill

From Philip K. Dick Award-nominated author M.T. Hill, Zero Bomb is a startling science fiction mystery that asks: what do we do when technology replaces our need to work?

The near future. Following the death of his daughter Martha, Remi flees the north of England for London. Here he tries to rebuild his life as a cycle courier, delivering subversive documents under the nose of an all-seeing state.

But when a driverless car attempts to run him over, Remi soon discovers that his old life will not let him move on so easily. Someone is leaving coded messages for Remi across the city, and they seem to suggest that Martha is not dead at all.

Unsure what to believe, and increasingly unable to trust his memory, Remi is slowly drawn into the web of a dangerous radical whose '70s sci-fi novel is now a manifesto for direct action against automation, technology, and England itself.

The deal? Remi can see Martha again - if he joins the cause.

  • "A rich tapestry of literary science fiction that combines metafiction, mystery, and a possible future that is at once terrifying and invigorating." -- Booklist
  • "Gripping... Grim in places, bitterly funny in others." -- SciFi Now
  • "Zero Bomb is a novel on the bleeding edge of desperate times. Delicious shivers of strangeness an allotment of limbs, a fox that is also a surveillance device bring an old magic to a future Britain broken by zero hours contracts, algorithmic bosses, and 24/7 alienation. Using a bold structure, the novel reveals its mysteries across different facets of a compelling near-future North." --Matthew De Abaitua
  • "Hill is a true innovator, a brilliant prose stylist and a writer with a high level of invention. Zero Bomb mixes intense human drama and political struggle to show that great SF exists as much on the streets of today s Britain as it does in the stars." --Jeff Noon
