Occupy Me

By Tricia Sullivan

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

A search not for who you are but what you are and a stunning revelation about the Universe and our place in it. Shortlisted for the 2017 Arthur C. Clarke Award.

A woman with wings that exist in another dimension. A man trapped in his own body by a killer. A briefcase that is a door to hell. A conspiracy that reaches beyond our world. Breathtaking SF from a Clarke Award-winning author.

Tricia Sullivan has written an extraordinary, genre defining novel that begins with the mystery of a woman who barely knows herself and ends with a discovery that transcends space and time. On the way we follow our heroine as she attempts to track down a killer in the body of another man, and the man who has been taken over, his will trapped inside the mind of the being that has taken him over.

And at the centre of it all a briefcase that contains countless possible realities.

Tricia Sullivan returns to the genre with a book that will define the conversation within the genre and will show what it is capable of for years to come. This is the best book yet from a writer of exceedingly rare talent who is much loved in the genre world.

Sullivan uses the tired tropes of paranormal fantasy and high-tech SF to explore ideas of morality and identity, and has produced a work of startling originality — The Guardian
Occupy Me keeps the pages turning and the wheels of thought whirring. It's a psychedelic experience, a wacky tapestry of an idea — SFX
this is science-fiction at its most surreal...the premise is brilliant — The Daily Mail
Uncanny and ambitious — NEW SCIENTIST
It's completely bonkers, incredibly brave and well worth exploring at ease. Occupy Me is bound to be one of the literary treats of 2016 so make sure you don't miss it. — Upcoming 4 Me
Conspiracies galore, questions about the nature of identity, brilliant evocative writing never detract from the unceasing pace of Sullivan's, a past Arthur C. Clarke Ward winner, futuristic fantasy thriller. Heralds a major new series — Lovereading.co.uk
Occupy Me is very funny and highly unusual, not least of which is having a main character who isn't just an angel, but a middle aged, black lesbian. It's highly imaginative, difficult to categorise, and frequently bizarre. But what it has done is inspired me to go and read Sullivan's other work because like Lauren Beukes, her stories certainly stand out out from the pack. — Fantasy Book Review
Occupy Me is a lot of fun to read, there are so many concepts and ideas thrown into the mix and yet it all works really well. The character interactions can be hilarious at times especially when they are trying to explain away the fantastic or when they are at cross purposes to each other. Tricia Sullivan has written a vivid story that is absorbing from start to finish. — Flickering Myth
This is truly subtle, masterful writing that has so much to offer...I thoroughly enjoyed it, I'm a sucker for fiction that forces a reader to think. — The Eloquent Page
Possibly Sullivan's best work yet and I'm hoping to see it featured on awards shortlists. — INTERZONE
