Once a celebrated author of scientific romances, Erik Clevedon is an old man now. But as Honoré Lechasseur and Emily Blandish discover after a chance encounter with a strangely gifted young pickpocket, his fiction conceals a dangerous truth.
Born between the Wars, the superhuman children known as "The Peculiar" are reaching adulthood - and they believe that humanity is making a poor job of looking after the world they plan to inherit. Part mystery, part detective story, part dark fantasy, and part science fiction, the Time Hunter Series features original adventures in time and space.
About the author: Philip Purser-Hallard has written science fiction, criticism, comedy sketches, and an inordinate number of emails. His first novel, Of the City of the Saved…, was published in 2004. His other published works include short fiction in The Book of the War, A Life Worth Living, and Wildthyme on Top. A long-term reader, fan, and critic of science fiction, he gained his doctorate from Oxford University by writing The Relationship between Creator and Creature in Science Fiction.
About the narrator: John Leeson starred in over 60 episodes of classic Doctor Who as mechanical hound K9. He has since returned to the role in several audio adventures as well as the new series of Doctor Who, with regular appearances in The Sarah-Jane Adventures and his very own spin off series.
