Shock Pao is the best. In the virtual world the Slip, there’s nothing he can’t steal for the right price. Outside the Slip, though, he’s a Fail – no degree, no job. So when his ex offers him a job, breaking into a corporate databank, he accepts it’s either that, or find himself a nice bench to sleep under. Amiga works for psychotic crime lord Twist Calhoun, so when Shock’s war comes to her, it’s her job to bring him to Twist, dead or alive.

Escapology is the debut novel from Ren Warom, author of e novella The lonely Dark (Fox Spirit 2014) and an exciting voice in the New Weird. She lives in Birmingham UK with her children. Fellow her on Twitter @renwarcm.

Warom makes an impressive debut with this action-packed, post-apocalyptic, postmodern adventure...The diverse characters and well-crafted setting breathe fresh life into the cyberpunk subgenre. Warom s language is dense, full of slang and complex character voices, but rewarding for its difficulty....readers will appreciate that this tale defiantly carves out its own identity. -- Publishers Weekly Will keep you on the edge of your seat...every page offers new twists and turns -Bio Gamer Girl A flaming loop-the-loop rollercoaster with no brakes -NPR Warom crafts an inventive world that upends familiar tropes, spinning a fast-moving plot that races from what threat to the next in breathless, laser-bright prose. -Barnes & Noble If you're in need of an addictive, fast-paced and immersive cyberpunk novel with thriller elements, you don't have to look elsewhere. -Rising Shadow One of 2016's stand out debuts -Barnes & Noble I recommend...that you read Escapology in the quietest setting possible. An isolation tank. A desert island. Swaddled in cotton wool in the basement of the British Library. You need to do this as a counterbalance to the heroic and possibly toxic amounts of adrenaline that reading it is likely to release. -Lit Reactor I can t recommend this book enough. It gets really weird, really fast and that what makes it such a fun read. -Nerdspan If you want some fast-paced, gritty and super imaginative cyberpunk, that's (ESCAPOLOGY) the one to look out for. -Shelf Awareness
