Solaris

Cover reveal: Chris Fowler’s The Sand Men

3 years ago

We take a stroll between the sand and the clear blue sky with Chris Fowler’s latest outing for Solaris, The Sand Men.

Set among the glittering skyscrapers and deadly dunes of Dubai, The Sand Men transports us to a future that’s five minutes away, where rebellion against conformity can lead to the unthinkable…

“I spent two years researching ‘The Sand Men’, my homage to JG Ballard, set in Dubai's new world of high-end, high-luxury resorts for the super-rich,” says Fowler. “But at what price to everyone else? The stunning cover perfectly sums up the feel and tone of the thriller, which encapsulates all of the themes I’ve been exploring in recent years.”

Set in a world of cruel juxtapositions where underpaid manual labourers slave over grandiloquent palaces for the world’s 1%; where nature is subverted to create a futuristic world in which manicured lawns meet dry desert dunes; and where a man can accidentally freeze to death on burning hot sand...

The Sand Men is a twisted Ballardian tale set in a world of uncertainties and paranoia, is a new style of thriller from the ever-popular author of the Bryant & May series.

And as is befitting a book this special, we’ve pulled out all the stops with our cover...


The Sand Men is coming from Solaris in October 2015.
