E-book only EXCLUSIVE!


From James Lovegrove’s New York Times bestselling Pantheon series, which has sold more than 100,000 copies worldwide, comes an e-book exclusive – a journey into a dark heart of deceit, lies and ancient gods.

Dion Yeboah leads an orderly life... until the day the spider appears. What this ordinary-looking arachnid turns out to be Anansi, the trickster god of African legend, and its arrival throws Dion’s life into chaos.

Lawyer Dion’s already impressive legal brain is sharpened. He becomes nimbler-witted and more ruthless than never before, both in and out of court. Then he discovers the price he has to pay for these newfound skills. He must travel to America and take part in a contest between the avatars of all the trickster gods. In a life-or-death battle of wits, at the end only one person will be left standing.

Age of Anansi is an e-book novella in the massive Panethon series. Age of Aztec, the next book in the series, will be published in 27th March in North America and 12th April in the UK.

“One of the UK SF scene’s most interesting, challenging and adventurous authors.”
