Product Details

Praise

“This superb novel of light, glass and blood proves again that Jeff Noon is one of our few true visionaries.”
 Warren Ellis

“A disturbing and bizarre journey by one of the great masters of weird fiction.”
 Adrian Tchaikovsky, Arthur C Clarke Award-winning author of Children of Time

“Every Jeff Noon novel is a wonderful, precious thing. These are bad times, and we need him more than ever.”
 Dave Hutchinson, British Science Fiction Association Award-winning author of the Europe series

“Style has always been Noon’s strongest suit, and in creating the varied cityscapes of A Man of Shadows, his talent for hallucinatory imagery has found a perfect match. This book is absolutely drenched in arresting visuals.”
Sam Reader for The B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

“Manchester’s delirious prophet returns with scripture written in shadow and light.”
– Kieron Gillen, co-creator of The Wicked + The Divine

“Noon has written a kaleidoscopic noir novel of dizzying dream logic.”
Publishers Weekly

“[Noon’s] prose takes you to weird and scary places other novelists don’t go – a reminder why he’s so revered.”
SFX magazine

“It’s a stylish and distinctive vision of a world that remains morally grey and foggy, even when under Dayzone’s bright artificial lights. Weirdly compelling.”
The Spectator

“This is a beguiling introduction to a strange new world, and a trip worth taking.”
Sci-Fi Now magazine

“While Vurt was undeniably the in-your-face work of a brash wunderkind, A Man of Shadows is arguably even better: the product of a more mature, surer writer with less desire to awe the reader for the sheer sake of showing off his chops, and more intent on producing emotional resonances, more vivid storylines, and imparting whatever hard-earned wisdom the writer has garnered.”
Paul di Filippo, for Locus

“Clocks and watches form a recurrent motif in this artful, eerie novel that infuses the mystery genre with symbolism and soul.”
James Lovegrove, for Financial Times

“This novel—and the double city contained within it—is an immersive and addictive experience; one that, despite the tension of the narrative, the reader will miss once it’s all over.”
– British Fantasy Society

“Wonderful and uniquely absorbing.”
– Starburst

“An unpredictable read from start to finish.” 4/5 stars
– Manhattan Book Review
