ANNOUNCEMENT: GdM to publish noir SF collection Neon Leviathan by T.R. Napper

Last Updated on December 18, 2019

The Grimdark Magazine team is excited to announce the February 2020 publication our first single-author noir science fiction collection, Neon Leviathan by T.R. Napper. We’re even more excited to have had this exciting new release blurbed by Altered Carbon author Richard K. Morgan (US Del Rey, UK Gollancz, Netflix).

Neon Leviathan is a collection of stories about the outsiders—the criminals, the soldiers, the addicts, the mathematicians, the gamblers and the cage fighters, the refugees and the rebels. From the battlefield to alternate realities to the mean streets of the dark city, we walk in the shoes of those who struggle to survive in a neon-saturated, tech-noir future.

Twelve hard-edged stories from the dark, often violent, sometimes strange heart of cyberpunk, this collection—as with all the best science fiction—is an exploration of who we are now. In the tradition of Dashiell Hammett, Philip K Dick, and David Mitchell, Neon Leviathan is a remarkable debut collection from a breakout new author.

For the first time, all of the pieces of T.R. Napper’s SF-noir world have been collected into one volume—Neon Leviathan forms a century-long timeline of political suppression, breath-taking technologies, pervasive corruption, and the spark of human dignity that still lights the dark.

This hardcover, paperback, and kindle release collects the author’s original fiction published over the last half-decade in Asimov’s, Interzone, Galaxy’s Edge, and in Grimdark Magazine, and two new exclusive stories.
