A corner of an alien field that is forever England?
It has been three months since the 13th Battalion of the Pennine Fusiliers vanished from the battlefields of the Somme. Stranded on an alien world by forces they cannot comprehend, this beleaguered band of Tommies must now try and find a way home...
In the action-packed follow-up to Kelleher's widely-acclaimed debut, No Man's World: Black Hand Gang, this genre-shattering tale of First World War soldiers fighting to survive on an alien world continues its blistering blend of historical detail, strong characters and powerful storytelling.
Corporal ‘Only’ Atkins and his Black Hand Gang return as the Pennines fight for their lives against the mounting horrors of No Man’s World, their only hope for survival – and a way home – lying in the psychotropic fuel-addicted crew of the ‘ironclad’ tank Ivanhoe... and its increasingly insane commander!
“I couldn’t put this one down... a thoroughly entertaining tale.”
– Graeme’s Fantasy Book Review on Black Hand Gang
About the Series
On November 1st 1916, 900 men of the 13th Battalion of the Pennine Fusiliers vanish without trace from the battlefield only to find themselves on an alien planet. There they must learn to survive in a hostile environment, while facing a sinister threat from within their own ranks and a confrontation with an inscrutable alien race!
No Man's World takes the conventions of horror and throws them out of the window in a series that pulses with action, tension and character. Pat Kelleher has created a unique world in which the so-familiar monochrome images of the trenches of Flanders are brought to vivid life in an alien environment.
“Abaddon are onto a real winner with this series.”
