The moral rights of the author have been asserted.

For the most part, Morden's writing is concise and fluid. Many of the scenes, particularly the action sequences, are very well done, almost cinematic in scope. This book would actually make a really good summer blockbuster popcorn movie. Chris Welch, for the 2006 World Fantasy Award. To read this book, upload an EPUB or FB2 file to Bookmate.

Simon Morden is a British science fiction author, best known for his Philip K. Dick Award-winning Metrozone series of novels set in post-apocalyptic London. Morden was educated as a scientist, attaining a BSc (Hons) in Geology from the University of Sheffield and his PhD in Geophysics from Newcastle University.

Grim sci-fi/horror story well done by Morden, but I feel like I've read/seen this story - or versions of it - before. Still, an interesting tale that makes you want to see what happens next.

com's Simon Morden Author Page. Simon has written eight novels and novellas. The wonderfully tentacular Another War (2005), was shortlisted for a World Fantasy Award, and 2007 saw the publication of The Lost Art, which was shortlisted for the Catalyst Award. The first three books starring everybody's favourite sweary Russian scientist, Samuil Petrovitch (Equations of Life, Theories of Flight, Degrees of Freedom) were published in three months of each other in 2011, and collectively won the Philip K Dick Award - the fourth Petrovitch, The Curve of the Earth, was published in 2013.

Samuil Petrovitch is a survivor

Samuil Petrovitch is a survivor. He survived the bombs falling on St. Petersburg and made it to the London Metrozone-one of the last free cities. Proof: Secrets like how to make anti-gravity for one. For another, he's keeping a sentient computer program on a secret server farm - the same program that nearly destroyed the Metrozone a few months back. Theorem: The city is broken. Proof: The people of the OutZone want what citizens of the Metrozone have.

Another War is an early novella, published in the UK by Telos Publishing in 2005, by the British writer Simon Morden, who has since come to prominence with the Philip K. Dick Award-winning Metrozone series, Equations of Life, Theories of Flight, Degrees of Freedom (all Orbit, 2011). A further book in the series, The Curve of the Earth, was published last year

It starts with a mystery: an old manor house is surrounded by an impenetrable bubble, and all that lives within it seems to wither and die. Investigating, the Army find two men inside the house: men who vanished some 100 years ago but who have now reappeared, and as young as the day they disappeared. There are rumours of a machine which could puncture the dimensions, allowing man to travel beyond the bounds of the Earth ... and for other things to travel here. Another day, another war.

Comments:

Skiletus
I grabbed this solely based on the cover. I was in the mood for a decent horror story and the cover has a certain "Welp, that'd suck if it happened to me" look to it, so off to the kindle it went.

I read it in a single night, and was somewhat creeped out by it. Weird horrifying creatures from another realm popping up and causing havoc? Definitely keeps the interest going.

The writing isn't the best at times, but it was an interesting enough idea and well written enough to warrant me grabbing a copy of his other work.

Pros -
Creepy.
Seriously, creepy.
Weird artifacts, crazy lovecraftian bad guys.
Unexpected ending.

Cons -
Writing is a little stiff in some places.
Ending was a bit odd compared to the rest of the book.
Wasn't longer (no stars deducted for it, but the book would not suffer from being twice as long. There's a HUGE amount of story left in this premise.)

All in all, as picky a reader as I am, I did enjoy this and hope to see a prequel or a sequel to it. Great idea, and handled pretty well.

A fun quick read of soldiers vs squid-like horrors from beyond space time. 80 years ago a manor house in England vanishes without a trace, now it's come back. It's not a long story, so the author doesn't waste a lot of time on backstory or explanation. If you're a fan of the Delta Green or Laundry series of books, you'll enjoy this.
Shan
First half of the book seemed very good with a nice HP Lovecraft vibe going on. The second half was the most generic military novel I've ever read. Never finished it.
Peras
A very interesting scenario and a terrific read till about half-way through when it became like comic book adventure, almost as if another writer took over and finished a promising start.
Nayatol
It is a quick read and satisfying. The author has put some thought, atmosphere, and vocabulary into it.
One expects the story to continue in a sequel or be fleshed out in a prequel. Nicely done.
Fhois
Very early Morden. Strange story structure and awkward ending.
