The Continuous Katherine Mortenhoe

By D.G. Compton

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

Now on the acclaimed SF Masterworks list, D.G. Compton's extraordinary novel is a forgotten classic of British SF that exposed the pitfalls of voyeuristic entertainment decades before the likes of THE TRUMAN SHOW.

A few years in the future, medical science has advanced to the point where it is practically unheard of for people to die of any cause except old-age. The few exceptions provide the fodder for a new kind of television show for avid audiences who lap up the experience of watching someone else's dying weeks. So when Katherine Mortenhoe is told that she has about four weeks to live she knows it's not just her life she's about to lose, but her privacy as well.

Michael G. Coney

Michael Greatrex Coney was a British-born author who spent the last three decades of his life in Canada - including 16 years in the British Colombia Forest Service. His early work carried a sense of Cold War-inspired paranoia, but his repertoire was wide and perhaps his best novel, HELLO SUMMER, GOODBYE, is a wistful story of adolescent love on a far-distant planet. The titles collected in this omnibus come from the fertile beginning of his career and include his debut novel MIRROR IMAGE, CHARISMA and the BSFA AWARD-winning BRONTOMEK!
