I'm John Meaney, and I write science fiction, fantasy and thrillers. Welcome to my virtual home! Pull up a chair, and let's catch up on
OUT NOW: CONCURRENT EXECUTION
From award-winning author John Meaney comes another exciting thriller set in the interzone between physical
and cyber action.
Case and Kat work the deadliest missions for IACS. But when Case becomes a target and his own agency's systems
are compromised, how can he and Kat prevent a deadly series of attacks? Preferably without dying in the process.
Also out: TRISTOPOLIS REVENGE
Tristopolis has faced eldritch dangers before, with resurrected cop-turned-PI Donal Riordan at the
forefront of keeping his city safe – but this time it's the ones he loves who face the deepest risk.
Will he be in time to save them? Or will the only thing left be revenge?
Also out: NEW JERUSALEM
The year is 1962, in a different world. The setting is New Jerusalem: the free Jewish state, founded in 1948,
that occupies 15 percent of pre-war Germany. Cold war is a growing threat, made more likely by a neo-Nazi
resurgence in Outer Germany.
David Wolf is a scientist and a spy, tragically in love with a woman who can never be his.
When treachery, betrayal and weapons-grade uranium mix together, can one lone Wolf possibly save lives and a fragile peace from total annihilation?
From across a cosmic void, the Darkness moves. At scattered points in human history, some individuals become
its tools, while others stand against them: Ulfr, a young Viking; Gavriela, pioneering physicist and World
War 2 cryptographer; Roger Blackstone, a 27th century mu-space Pilot.
There are others, but will they be enough to save humanity's descendants a million years from now,
when the Darkness and its forces reach the heart of our galaxy?
