About Gary


Gary Gibson is the author of ten novels, all published by Pan MacMillan in the UK. Of these, he's perhaps best known for The Shoal Sequence: in order, Stealing Light, Nova War, Empire of Light, and most recently, Marauder. 

His most recent published novel, his ninth, is Extinction Game, which received a starred review from Publisher's Weekly. 

Some reviews: "One of the top SF writers active today . . . In the right hands SF can be wonderful, inventive and hugely enjoyable - and Gary Gibson is just that sort of author." - walkerofworlds.com.  "To be considered alongside the leading triumvirate of British hard SF writers: Al Reynolds, Peter Hamilton, and Neal Asher . . . a treat for all fans of intelligent space opera." - The Guardian. "Gibson has certainly proved himself a name to watch." - SFX.

All of his books are published  by Tor, an imprint of Pan Macmillan books, and have been translated to Spanish, German and Russian. Audiobooks have been made of all but the first two. He is represented by John Jarrold of the John Jarrold Literary Agency, and any enquiries about rights should be directed there.

Tor UK have a web page with links to interviews and articles.


My next published novel, Survival Game, is due in August 2016. Its a direct sequel to my last book, Extinction Game, which received the much-covered starred review from Publisher's Weekly. For more information, or to preorder a copy of the book (due in August 2016) check the sidebar on the right.

Short Fiction: My eight-thousand word story, Scienceville, appeared in the December 2015 issue of Interzone magazine, the UK's premier sf short story magazine. My first publication in that magazine, back in 1994, became the basis for my first published novel, Angel Stations, in 2004. 
To order a copy of Interzone, either browse here for Amazon's Kindle edition or at Weightless Books for more ebook and PDF options. You can also order a hardcopy of the magazine here. 

Since January 2016, I've been working on a near-to intermediate future hard sf novel, tentatively titled 'Echogenesis', unrelated to any of my previous novels.
