About the author:
I was born in Yorkshire, England. When I was 10 years old my grandfather gave me a copy of A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and from then on I was hooked on science fiction and fantasy. I worked for Scotland Yard before moving to Japan for ten years to lecture in literature and philosophy.
To date my writing has included nonfiction work on literature and cinema, and movie and TV scripts. I co-produced in the Japanese film industry for a while, when I lived in Tokyo.
My secret burning passion has always been to write the kind of imaginative and experimental Science Fiction and Fantasy I loved as a kid in the 1970s - so that's the path I've set myself on now. My favourite authors include (in no particular order) Michael Moorcock, Jack Vance, Gene Wolfe and Mervyn Peake.
John Guy Collick
The universe is empty. The stars are dead. The worlds are no more.
The last humans struggle to create a god to save them from the utter end. In the shadow of this colossus Max Ocel rescues a beautiful stranger from the clutches of an insane giant, and sets in motion a chain of events that threatens to wipe out mankind itself.
Invincible battleships bear down on the ancient city of Metacarpi. Assassins stalk the stone tower of his childhood. Alien creatures gather in the darkness. Max faces the realisation that he must sacrifice everything he holds dear to save humanity.
Thumb - the first volume in The Book of the Colossus, a gripping fast-paced science fantasy series of incredible imagination.
