The UK paperback edition of Echo Boy will be published on March 26th by Corgi.
Lots of people have been saying very nice things about it:
‘highly original page turner’ Independent on Sunday
‘a cracking plot with profound philosophical questions about what it is to be human. Fearless and beautifully written, it confirms Haig as one of our best new writers of speculative fiction.’ New Statesman
Echo Boy is an exciting SF thriller, but also a rich and deeply felt exploration of the line that separates humans – creatures of love, passion, fear and hate – from mere organic simulations. The Guardian
‘It’s a treat to read such a satisfying, complex work…’ FT
‘The thrilling plot is one of betrayal, power and greed, but the theme is what makes us human — and at what cost we ignore it. I predict a sequel . . .’ Daily Mail
‘Poignant and thought-provoking.’ The Bookseller
‘A page-turning mega thriller you won’t be able to put down.’ 5/5 Flipside magazine
‘A brilliant story you’ll want to read in one setting.’ The Sun
