From the Philip K. Dick Award nominee author of Cowl, an adrenaline-powered new SF adventure: Brass Man. Neal Asher returns to his trademark Polity future setting, in a sequel to Gridlinked, which SFRevu.com called  "brilliant and audacious work, chock-full of cutting-edge ideas."
         Ian Cormac, a legendary Earth Central Security agent, the James Bond of  a wealthy future, is hunting an interstellar dragon, little knowing that, far away, his competition has resurrected an horrific killing machine named "Mr. Crane" to assist in a similar hunt, ecompassing whole star systems. Mr. Crane, the insane indestructible artificial man now in a new metal body, seeks to escape a bloody past he can neither forget nor truly remember. And he is on a collision course with Ian Cormac.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Brass Man
1The lethal results for a human of directly interfacing with an AI have been known since the apotheosis of that being who was, briefly, both Iversus Skaidon and the Craystein Computer. This joining killed Skaidon and sent the Craystein far to the other side of weird, where even other AIs find its communications somewhat ... gnomic. But what is this 'direct interfacing' - surely we do this through our augs and gridlinks? Not so. These two methods of connection, along with planetary servers and so forth, act as buffers between the human and the AI minds.

Praise for Brass Man

"Asher has lit up the sky of Science Fiction like a new sun."  —Tanith Lee

“Fizzing with intelligent ideas and occasionally streaked with black humor. Appalling, mind-boggling, fascinating—and irresistible.”  —Kirkus, starred review

“Asher’s latest novel features fast-paced action, spy vs. spy intrigue, and the guilty pleasure of watching two exceptional and opposed individuals move inexorably toward an inevitable showdown.”  —Library Journal

“Neal Asher has always drummed up a healthy dose of space adventure and wicked fun in his novels and Brass Man maintains this reputation effortlessly.”  —Interzone

"Asher does time travel and he does it damn well, taking the reader on a journey that would make one hell of a theme park ride!"  —SFRevu.com
