by Adam Roberts

I don't read a great deal of science fiction but if I could find more books like this darkly comic take on UFOs, Stalin and the power of words than I would definitely do so.

'Cancer cells are more susceptible to radiation than ordinary cells. That, combined with the limited surgical excision, has, I believe, materially lengthened your life expectancy.'
'To be clear,' I said. 'By smoking a cigarette, inside a nuclear facility, whilst having my skull blown up by a radioactive RGD-5 I have extended my life expectancy?'
' A strange chance indeed.'
