'Truly a slice of magic and a work of imaginative genius.' Starburst

A mind-bending mystery spanning continents and centuries for all fans of Neal Stephenson and David Mitchell.

'A witty and weird tale with shades of both Philip K Dick, and Kieron Gillen/Jamie McKelvie's comic The Wicked + The Divine.' SFX

'An experience that is both absorbing and emotional' SciFi Now

My obsession begins in the magical year 1967, at Luce and the Photons' legendary last secret gig. That night changes my life: I must know who Luce is. But the deeper I dig, the more questions I turn up. Is Luce a rock star or a pretender? An artist or an acid trip?

My redemption . . . or my delusion?

Drawn into the machinations of mysterious powers, I become the dark shadow who follows the light of Luce. But who follows me? Are they agents of evil or figments of my imagination? And do they follow me still?

The quest for Luce will lead me to the farthest corners of the earth and into the deadliest danger. I will lose everything and everyone I love . . . except for Luce.

Who is pawn and who is player? Murderer or victim? Betrayer or saviour?

I am the only one who knows the truth.

This is the truth.

This is The Book of Luce.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Equal parts hippy travelogue and pulp existential thriller . . . a witty and weird tale with shades of both Philip K Dick, and Kieron Gillen/Jamie McKelvie's comic The Wicked + The Divine. * SFX *
An experience that is both absorbing and emotional. * SciFi Now *
A clever and impressive novel, a drug-infused meta story that never wants to reveal too much or make definitive judgements. * Fiendfully Reading Blog *
Somehow this story puts into words the life grail we are all seeking. * Bookphace *
Such is the nature of the cult of L.R. Frederick's 'Time and Light' series, and if it doesn't expand you mind to new possibilities, you'll at least find it an enjoyable romp though some old ones. * The Digital Fix *
This is a beautifully written, fascinating and interesting book. * Let Them Read Books *
Herman Hesse meets Salman Rushdie: the acceptance and presentation of what's beyond the veil as part of everyday life coupled with a scholarly grasp of the subject matter. * Van is Reading *
Truly a slice of magic and a work of imaginative genius. * Starburst *
