Lucas Bale writes the sort of intense, gripping science-fiction thrillers which make you miss your train. Stories which dig into what makes us human and scrape at the darkness which hides inside every one of us.

His debut novel, The Heretic, is the gateway to the Beyond the Wall series, an epic hard science-fiction space opera about the future of humanity and the discovery of the truth of its past.

He wasn't always a writer. He was a criminal lawyer for fifteen years before he discovered crime doesn't pay and turned to something which actually pays even less. No one ever said he was smart, but at least he's happy. He blushes when people mention him in the same sentence as Iain M. Banks or George R. R. Martin. Bless him.
