Truth and Fear

By Peter Higgins (Electronic Book, 2014)
Investigator Lom returns to Mirgorod and finds the city in the throes of a crisis. The war against the Archipelago is not going well. Enemy divisions are massing outside the city, air raids are a daily occurrence and the citizens are being conscripted into the desperate defense of the city.

But Lom has other concerns. The police are after him, the mystery of the otherworldly Pollandore remains and the vast Angel is moving, turning all of nature against the city.

But will the horrors of war overtake all their plans?

He has been published by Asimov's Science Fiction, Fantasy Magazine and Zahir. His short story 'Listening for Submarines' was translated and published by the St. Petersburg-based literary magazine Esli. He is married with three children and lives in South Wales.
  • An amazing, fast-paced story in a fantasy world poised dangerously on the edge of quantum probability, a world where angels war with reality. (Peter F. Hamilton).

  • I absolutely loved WOLFHOUND CENTURY. Higgins's world is a truly original creation, Russian cosmism and Slavic mythology filtered through steampunk and le Carre. What really captured me was his beautiful style and language: his metaphors and associations flow smoothly like the waters of the Mir, and, like Lom without his angel stone, make you see the world in a new way. ( Hannu Rajaniemi
    ).

  • Like vintage Mieville or Vandermeer, but with all the violent narrative thriller drive of Fleming at his edgiest. I fell into Wolfhound Century and devoured it in three days flat.Peter Higgins is a great discovery, a gifted writer with a route map to some fascinating new dark corners of the imagination, and a fine addition to the contemporary fantasy canon. (Richard Morgan).
