Set for release in June of this year, Gollancz are marketing Steeple as a blend between the movie RAID and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep . Being a fan of both, this sounds like it has some serious potential.


After checking out the praise for his debut, Barricade, I’m not sure how I missed Jon Wallace’s first novel. But, I will definitely be trying to catch up, especially after reading the blurb for Steeple.

The Steeple looms over the barren wasteland of London. A one thousand story tower, The Steeple is all that remains of humanity’s failed civilisation, feared and revered by all, and haunted by broken remnants of the society now lost. For Kenstibec, The Steeple might be his only chance at survival.

Kenstibec is a Ficial – a genetically engineered artificial life form. Tough, highly skilled and difficult to kill, Kenstibec is used to the luxuries that he possesses. That is, until he loses the nanotech that constantly repaired him. More mortal than ever, Kenstibec is no better than the few remaining humans clinging to life in the blighted, devastated world. Now called ‘The Reals’, these humans are locked in a long-standing conflict with their own creations.

Rumours of The Steeple’s secrets are the only hope that Kenstibec has left. With one thousand stories to climb and a ticking clock, for Kenstibec the only way is up.
