About the Author: Mark Anson

Mark Anson has had a lifelong interest in reading and writing science fiction thrillers and adventures, and spends considerable effort researching and creating the highly detailed and scientifically accurate settings and drawings for his novels I think it s important to get accuracy and consistency in any fictional setting whether it s a historical romance or a science fiction adventure set on a distant planet To me, the background is as essential as the story itself, and I strive to make it as believable as possible Mark lives with his wife in the depths of the Suffolk countryside with horses, cats and various other animals He is currently working on the next novel in the series, which is set between the events of Acid Sky and Below Mercury , and is set in space, beyond the orbit of Mars.
