2 months ago

Solaris are delighted to announce the publication of The Human Son by #1 bestselling author Adrian J. Walker, which will be released April this year. The Human Son is a startling, emotional, and beautiful book – to be enjoyed widely by all science fiction fans, and more!

Editor Michael Rowley acquired World English rights in Walker’s new novel from Sam Copeland of RCW (Rogers, Coleridge & White).

About the book:


The Earth was dying, and only the Erta could save it. Created to be genetically superior, hyper-intelligent and unburdened by the full range of human emotions, they succeeded by removing the cause: humans.

Now the Erta are faced with a dilemma—if they reintroduce the rebellious and violent Homo sapiens, all of their work could be undone.

They decide to raise one child: a sole human to decide if we should again inherit the Earth.

But the quiet and clinical Ima finds that there is more to raising a human than she had expected; and there is more to humanity’s history than she has been told.

Author Adrian J. Walker on the book:

“I’m beyond thrilled that Rebellion are publishing The Human Son, and I can’t wait for it to hit the shelves. Human ingenuity fascinates me, and for some time I’ve been obsessed by the idea that we might one day delegate our fate to an intelligence of our own making. This story is about how that might work out for us. But it is also about humanity’s triumphs and frailties, about parenthood, and about how the act of caring for another being can awaken our senses.”

Editor Michael Rowley had this to say:

“I’ve long been a fan of Adrian J. Walker’s books, and it was fantastic to be able to acquire The Human Son. It’s a novel of great insight and compassion, with a thrilling plot that had me hooked from the start. The Human Son does what all great science fiction books strive to do: imagines the future and our place on it, while commentating on our present. “

 The Human Son with be out in paperback and eBook 28 April (US) and 30 April (UK).
