The first book in Simon Morden's post-apocalyptic Metrozone trilogy,
Equations of Life comes out this month. Publisher Orbit Books decided to celebrate by creating huge, graffiti-style wall murals related to the trilogy in various English cities.
More books should become street art.
Equations of Life is out this month, and the next two books follow in May and June. Here's the description from publisher Orbit Books of Equations:
Samuil Petrovitch is a survivor. He survived the nuclear fallout in St. Petersburg and hid in the London Metrozone – the last city in England. He's lived this long because he's a man of rules and logic. For example: GETTING INVOLVED = A BAD IDEA.
But when he stumbles into a kidnapping in progress, he acts without even thinking. Before he can stop himself, he's saved the daughter of the most dangerous man in London. And clearly: SAVING THE GIRL = GETTING INVOLVED.
Now, the equation of Petrovitch's life is looking increasingly complex:
RUSSIAN MOBSTERS + YAKUZA + SOMETHING CALLED THE NEW MACHINE JIHAD = ONE DEAD PETROVITCH.
But Petrovitch has a plan – he always has a plan – he's just not sure it's a good one.
