From Warhammer 40,000 author Guy Haley, his first original series remastered and collected together in this new omnibus edition!
File Under: Science Fiction [ Detectives Rebooted | Ghost in the Machine | Remurder | Take Two ]
Meet Richards & Klein – the Holmes and Watson of the 22nd century. Well, if Holmes were an advanced AI obsessed with pulp fiction, and Watson a gun-toting cyborg.
When AI rights activist Zhang Qifang winds up murdered, Richards has to get involved – the man set his kind free after all. What should be a simple case turns out to be anything but, because Qifang has been killed more than once. Someone really wanted him dead.
A deadly trail leads the duo across a warming globe, from New London to Colorado, Sinosiberia and beyond, for the ultimate answers lie in the virtual world of Reality…
Guy Haley is the author of over 40 novels and novellas. His original fiction includes Crash, Champion of Mars, and the Richards and Klein, Dreaming Cities, and the Gates of the World series (as K M McKinley). However, he is best known as a prolific contributor to Games Workshop's Black Library imprint, and has sold over 1.3 million books set in their Warhammer universes.
He lives in Hebden Bridge, with his wife, son and a malamute.
Haley said: “I thank whichever omnipotent deity that’s listening for Angry Robot. The opportunities for new writers are few and far between these days, so hurrah for an imprint that’s not afraid to go hunting out new talent – which includes me. I can’t wait to please my Robot Overlords, though I refuse to do any happy time oiling, that’s not in my contract. It’s just writing. Honest.”
Angry Robot Publishing Director Marc Gascoigne added: “We already have a proud tradition at AR of investing in new writers, and in Guy’s case it was a no-brainer. Richards and Klein are brilliant creations, and their adventures wonderfully entertaining. But if Guy thinks he’s going to get off oiling duty, he should check the small print in his contract.”
