Woken Furies

by Richard Morgan

Welcome to Harlan's World - a weird and wonderful place: mega-rich corrupt oligarchs, the secret of eternal life (of sorts) – and the best surfing in the galaxy. And, as a revolutionary icon emerges from the past, everything may change. A book about the sheer, bloody-minded indestructibility of the human spirit. Science fiction for Aung San Suu Kyi.

Extract

The machine had four powerful-looking side-mounted legs ending in clawed feet, a long angular head full of multi-barrelled ancillary weaponry, and a spiked tail that would gouge into the ground to give added stability. It even had wings - a webbed framework of upward-curving launch cradles designed to take the primary missile load.
It was dead.
