In a sequel to Dogs of War, Honey the genetically engineered bear takes a ride in Jimmy the Martian's head and starts a revolution on the Red Planet.

Honey the genetically engineered bear starts a revolution on the Red Planet in the new novel from the Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author of Children of Time.

WELCOME TO HELL CITY, MARSJimmy Martin has a sore head.

He's used to smuggling illegal data in his headspace. But this is the first time it has started talking to him.

The data claims to be a distinguished academic, author and civil rights activist.

It also claims to be a bear.

A bear named Honey.

Jimmy has nothing against bioforms - he's one himself, albeit one engineered out of human stock - and works with them everyday in Hell City, building the future, staking mankind's claim to a new world: Mars.

The problem is that humanity isn't the only entity with designs on the Red Planet. Out in the airless desert there is another presence. A novel intelligence, elusive, unknowable and potentially lethal.

And Honey is here to make contact with it, whether Jimmy likes it or not.

Praise for Bear Head:'An unashamedly thrilling escapade' The Times 'Funny, appalling, gruesome and uplifting ... Propelled by a cracking plot that balances dystopian satire with a palpable sense of moral peril' Daily Mail 'An absolute whammy of a read, and a must for anyone who enjoys a smart, fast-paced, hugely entertaining blast of speculative fiction ... This is one of those books where you can just throw yourself and abandon yourself to a fabulous story, knowing you will be entertained throughout' LoveReading 'A rousing good read' Guardian 'If you're a fan of Black Mirror, this classic dystopian book will have you hooked within the first few pages. Smart, fast-paced, and razor-sharp, this book is surprisingly funny while still remaining deeply thought-provoking' Daily Express

Reviews for Bear Head (#2 Dogs of War)

'Adrian Tchaikovsky's dissection of Thompson's appeal and ghastly genius is the thoughtful highlight of this unashamedly thrilling escapade. You don't need to have read Dogs of War to enjoy Bear Head - but why deny yourself the pleasure?' * The Times * 'Adrian Tchaikovsky has done another marvellous job of humanising his bioform characters: bears, dogs and other animals with varying amounts of modifications and intelligence. Their attitudes and thought-processes are extrapolated in thoughtful and interesting ways and we are even offered an insight into the way that a distributed intelligence would work ... A thrilling and fun sequel to Dogs of War that expands the universe in new and profound directions' * SF Crowsnest * 'A thought-provoking novel ... Bear Head is a triumph. Its story is fascinating, with unexpected events occurring throughout. It's a novel filled with compassion and characters that are very easy to empathize with' -- Geek Dad 'An absolute whammy of a read, and a must for anyone who enjoys a smart, fast-paced, hugely entertaining blast of speculative fiction ... Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning Adrian Tchaikovsky has successfully combined weighty, thought-provoking moments, with a Trump-like baddie, full-on action and smirky humour ... This is one of those books where you can just throw yourself and abandon yourself to a fabulous story, knowing you will be entertained throughout' * LoveReading *
