Adam Christopher – ‘the new future of science fiction’

New Zealand science fiction writer Adam Christopher is part of the ‘new future of science fiction,’ and an author who is breathing ‘fresh strength and vitality into science fiction and fantasy,’ according to The Irish Times.‘Originally hailing from New Zealand, Adam Christopher has been getting a lot of attention for his gritty superhero novels, Empire State and Seven Wonders’, says The Irish Times. English writer Gareth Powell praises Christopher in The Irish Times as part of a ‘new generation of writers…all writing non-traditional genre-blending fiction, united by…an individualism that baulks at being conscripted into anybody else’s idea of what genre writing should or should not be…These new writers take the ingrediants of the past and recombine them with pockets of pulp adverture, alternative history and mythology…to tell new stories – stoies with global sensetivties, which aspire to the style of mainstream literature in terms of character, style and strucuture’, Powell writes. Christopher’s Empire State was named by SciFiNow Magazine as its 2012 book of the year.
