The Departure by Neal Asher

As Janus shows Saul an Earth stripped of hope, he resolves to annihilate the Committee and their regime. British Fantasy Society Delivers plenty of thrills, and the climax also sets up a very intriguing status quo for neal asher the departure second volume.

When combined with the way that Asher's main characters are usually acting to preserve social order or improve their society rather than disrupt a society they neal asher the departure estranged fromthese influences could place his work in the subgenre known as post-cyberpunk.

This is not a Polity novel.

It seems that, here and now, Earth had both. None of which makes Neal Asher a bad person, and certainly not a bad writer Because it's one thing to use your standing as an author to publicise those things you have authored -- neal asher the departure entirely, I think, to abuse your position of power to pitch your particular idea of the facts, such as they are, to those folks who admire you for your fiction.

So I have my problems with Neal Asher's politics. But truth be told, I had no issues at all with Neal Asher's novels It was my first of his works, and though I neal asher the departure wise enough never to say never, it will, I expect, be my last.
