Angelmaker is already generating buzz—and buzz is a powerful (and dangerous) thing, as you’ll soon learn in the book. Wired raves, “Angelmaker is like a Quentin Tarantino movie written by Neil Gaiman: larger-than-life characters, dry British humor, a heavy dose of the weird, and a bit macabre; horrendous things wrapped up in gorgeous language.” And William Gibson himself highlighted the book as a current favorite in the New York Times. “You are in for a treat, sort of like Dickens meets Mervyn Peake in a modern Mother London. The very best sort of odd.”
We’re so excited about this new book that we’re proud to present an exclusive excerpt of the first chapter after the jump!
