The Petrovitch Trilogy
By Simon Morden
Welcome to the Metrozone - post-apocalyptic London of the future. Whilst the rest of Britain has devolved to anarchy, the M25 cordon protects a decaying city filled with homeless refugees, street gangs, exiled yakuza, crooked cops and mad cults. And something else; something new and dangerous. Enter Samuil Petrovitch: a Russian émigré with a smart mouth, a dodgy heart and a dodgier past. He's brilliant, friendless, cocky and - armed only with a genius-level intellect, prototype cyberware and a prodigious vocabulary of Russian swear words - might just be most unlikely champion a city has ever had. Welcome to the future. Mind the gap. This omnibus edition contains Equations of Life, Theories of Flight and Degrees of Freedom.

As he journeys from one isolated community to the next, the old, worn uniform becomes far more than a protection against the unrelenting cold: it's a reminder of how things were before the world collapsed - and a symbol for how things might be again.His story is one of a lie becoming the most important kind of truth.Translated into 25 languages around the world, The Postman is a powerful and affecting novel about survival of the human spirit, from the award-winning author of EXISTENCE and The Uplift novels.
