Read full description of the books Red Claw:Professor Richard Helms heads up a tight-knit band of scientists and soldiers sent to explore New Amazon, a lush but savage planet seemingly determined to attack them at every turn. When they are done cataloguing every detail of this vast, unfamiliar ecosystem, they will burn it to the ground and make it fit for human habitation.
But when the team falls under attack, Helms and his followers are forced to flee into the depths of the jungle. Here, old enemies and petty rivalries surface as they struggle to survive. They soon end up fighting for their lives - against the planet they are exploring, the robots designed to protect them and, most of all, against each other. For the countdown into madness is ticking.
Palmer burns a new path for science fiction in this gripping, dark tale of man's place in the universe.
Read information about the authorI started writing when I was 14 and wrote a short story for the school magazine about a bank robber who is killed during a heist and goes to Heaven - can't get through the Pearly Gates, and has to break in. Nicely synthesising all the genres I still love to mash up...
When I came to London from University I started writing and combined that with working for theatres and TV and film companies as a script reader. I worked at the Royal Court for a while, which taught me so much. And then I became a 'telly writer' and script editor.
Now I am writing novels that are big and epic and draw on all the parts of my life, and of me. HELL ON EARTH may be a surprise to readers who know my previous books - it's not SF, for starters. But there's still humour, I hope. And mystery, and danger. And a host of quirky and interesting characters, only some of them alive.
