'She belongs to me - property rights would prevail.'

Evie is a near-perfect bioengineered human. In a broken-down future England where her kind has been outlawed, her 'husband' Matthew keeps her safe but hidden. When her existence is revealed, she must take her chances on the dark and hostile streets where more than one predator is on the hunt.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Written with flair and humanity... mesmerising.

-- Simon Ings * The Times *

'Not since Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep have I felt so strongly about where artificial intelligence might lead us. Highly recommended.'

-- Christina Dalcher, author of VOX

'Consistently engaging, fast-moving and surprising, The Actuality gives familiar science fiction themes a fresh and compassionate look, and makes of them something new.'

-- Ken MacLeod

The Actuality is smart, literary science fiction.

-- Ollie Kirrage * Infinite Speculation *

The Actuality offers a rich contemplation of ethical and philosophical questions about artificial life and intelligence.

-- John Self * BBC Culture *

“I've got an electric car but I've never considered getting an electric human”
