Simon A. Forward--Evil UnLtd

Simon A Forward is an author of numerous works of licensed fiction, including Doctor Who novels and audio dramas and three novelisations for the BBC's Merlin series. He lives in Cornwall with his wife and two cats. The A is optional. His middle initial, that is, not the 'a' in the word 'cats'.

Product description:
Evil UnLtd Vol 1: The Root Of All Evil.

The Farce Of The Dark Side. Villains are the new Heroes in this Sci-Fi Epic.

Sinister supreme genius and super-villain, Dexter Snide, has floated Evil on the stock market and has gathered together a band of fellow villains, whose key challenge now is to ensure that Evil shows a consistent profit.

But Evil has its enemies. Like muscle-brained action hero, Rolph Stengun. As well as a shadowy rival, watching the progress of Evil UnLtd from a distant limb of the galaxy...

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
While on authonomy, the sample chapters won numerous fans, from seasoned sf-readers and people who wouldn't normally have touched sci-fi with a barge pole. This suggests a nicely broad appeal which I think owes a lot to the characters - it seems a great many people love a good villain.

Q: Why did you go indie?
After consistently being told by agents and editors that this was an excellent book, really funny, but that there was "No market for sci-fi comedy" unless my name was Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett, I realised I was going to need an alternative route to reach my readers.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
Douglas Adams. Harry Harrison. Larry Niven. Alastair Reynolds. Peter F Hamilton. Iain M Banks. (Evil draws its inspiration as much from serious sci-fi authors as the funnier ones.)

  1. I can't recommend this book highly enough. I absolutely loved it, the characters, the story, the humour and the word play. I'm definitely not a Sci Fi fan - I maybe read one or two books in that genre a year - but I'm a fan of this book. Read it, you won't regret it. You'll love it.
