Adrian Tchaikovsky is the author of the acclaimed Shadows of the Apt fantasy series and the epic science fiction blockbuster Children of Time. He has won the Arthur C. Clarke Award, a British Fantasy Society Award, and been nominated for the David Gemmell Legend Award. In civilian life he is a gamer and amateur entomologist. He was a full time lawyer until recently, when he decided to write full time, instead.
Tchaikovsky's vision is bizarre, frightening, and wildly imaginative. Readers will be wowed. --Publishers Weekly starred review Praise for The Expert System's Brother I loved it. A bold, vivid story about humanity and the broader universe. Should we mold the universe to suit us? Or should we mold ourselves to suit the universe? Adrian Tchaikovsky keeps these choices in tension, and kept me riveted to the page. --Ramez Naam, author of Nexus A great coming-of-age story that careens through a world so vividly realized that you can feel each insect bite and taste every acrid berry. The Expert System's Brother gives you that visceral eek of satisfaction as its pieces come into view then fit together with exacting precision. It's a smart story, smartly told. --Hugo Award Winner, John Chu Tchaikovsky convincingly evokes a world populated with grotesque creatures, rituals, vegetation and mysterious technology that reflects a command of the science fiction genre. --Lincolnshire Life Magazine
