In Neal Asher's The Technician, the Theocracy has been dead for twenty years, and the Polity rules on Masada – but it is an order that the rebels of the Tidy Squad cannot accept, and the iconic Jeremiah Tombs is top of their hitlist.
Tombs, meanwhile, has escaped his sanatorium. His insanity must be cured, because the near-mythical hooder, called ‘the Technician’, that attacked him all those years ago, did something to his mind even the AIs fail to understand. Tombs might possess information about the suicide of an entire alien race. It’s up to the war drone Amistad to discover this information, with the help of an ex-rebel Commander, the black AI Penny Royal and the amphidapt Chanter.
Meanwhile, in deep space, the mechanism the Atheter used to reduce themselves to animals stirs from slumber and begins to power-up its weapons . . .
You need to bring the price down if you want to sell ebooks this is too expensive I'll stick to books until you do!!
If you want a Sci-Fi iBook for half the price of the print counter part check out 'The Interlopers' here on the iBookstore. The best Sci-Fi iBook I have ever read.
When you don't have to print or distribute this book, why is it so expensive? I'm going into town to buy the hardback for 2/3 the price!
