M. John Harrison Book and Novel

M. John Harrison - Author


M. John Harrison was born in the Peak District and now lives in London.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on VIRICONIUM...
Collects the three novels and all the short stories British author Harrison wrote about the twilight world of a mysterious far future city. With echoes of Victorian fantasy, Beardsley and Mervyn Peake, this is an imagined world both rich and allusive, cruel and colourful and full of action.

Stylish and challenging and proof that fantasy doesn’t end with Tolkien.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
