What if a whole race wanted you dead, where would you go? And what if you didn't know why? What if everything you thought you knew about yourself was wrong? Cyberpunk vs Steampunk: a dystopian post-apocalyptic adventure for MG/YA crossover One thousand years have passed since nuclear war wiped out civilization in the northern hemisphere. The planet slowly heats and water becomes a rare resource. Out of the ruins of a devastated civilization rises a new breed of people - those with the power to control magnetism. Teslas Sebastian, a young orphan boy from a quiet rural town, is being hunted by strange part-machine, part-human people. His only hope is Melanie, an angry, dying teenage girl who is dragged into the adventure and sets out to deliver him to the Steam Academy, even if it's just to stop him talking. Seb must confront an unknown past and fight against everything he believed in. And occasionally wash his hair. No one said it would be easy.
Mark was first published at eight, when a local newspaper published his review of Disney on Ice. The next time his name was in print was a lifetime later at the age of fifteen, when a national magazine ran his review of the Commodore 64. It was downhill from there, with weekly and monthly columns in various newspapers and magazines that funded a rather noncommittal path through university, studying a range of topics including Robotics, Anthropology, Philosophy, Computer Science, and Psychology. In fact, so many subjects were studied he was eligible for graduation at the end of his second year, based purely on attendance. He now writes off-beat science fiction books, some of which have won awards. The Tesla Evolution series is studied at school and university-level in the US and UK.
