It was the last great science hero fight, but the energy blast ripped a hole in reality, and birthed the Empire State - a young, twisted parallel prohibition-era New York.In an interview conducted by Amanda from Floor to Ceiling Books the author described the book a bit more indepth:
When the rift starts to close, both worlds are threatened, and both must fight for the right to exist.
File Under: Science Fiction [ Pocket Universe | Heroes or Villains | Speak Easy | Loyalties Divided ]
The first book is called Empire State, and it’s sort of a science fiction-detective-noir. Private detective Rad Bradbury, who lives in this dreary, fog-bound city called the Empire State, is called to investigate a gruesome murder, only to find himself being chased not only by a superhero who is supposed to be dead, but by a couple of masked agents who seem to know an awful lot about him. His investigations reveal an alarming secret about the Empire State and its connection with another place called New York, and he gets caught up in a conspiracy that threatens both worlds.Empire State will hit the shelves at the end of December in the States and the first week of January in the UK. Christopher looks to be an author to watch if you're a fan of Superheros as he has a standalone sequel titled Seven Wonders that will be out in the latter half of 2012.
