It starts with a mystery: an old manor house is surrounded by an impenetrable bubble, and all that lives within it seems to wither and die.

Investigating, the Army find two men inside the house: men who vanished some 100 years ago but who have now reappeared, and as young as the day they disappeared.

There are rumours of a machine which could puncture the dimensions, allowing man to travel beyond the bounds of the Earth… and for other things to travel here.

Another day, another war.


‘Reading like a UNIT-era ‘Doctor Who’ this is a ‘us = good, them = bad’ story with no new-age sensibilities to worry about … a ‘Boy’s Own’ action adventure complete with tentacled monsters and baying mobs.’

– Sue Davies,

‘This short novel is fast-paced, action-packed, and a page-turner. It is a mix of horror, time-travel, military action, suspense, and science-fiction, with a little bit of ancient history thrown into the mix. For the most part, Morden’s writing is concise and fluid. Many of the scenes, particularly the action sequences, are very well done, almost cinematic in scope. This book would actually make a really good summer blockbuster popcorn movie.’

Simon Morden - BA (Sheffield), PhD (Newcastle), astronomer, trained in geology and planetary geophysics. Unfortunately, with such an education, it is not easy to find a job in the real world: he managed to visit the school caretaker, secretary, personal secretary with a financial advisor. Now working as a non-permanent faculty member at Gateshead Elementary School, she also works as a housekeeper, trying to keep the Edwardian stonework from collapsing, fighting her two children and providing warm sleeping places for domestic cats. The not-so-secret writing career began when he published his story Bell, Book and Candle in an anthology. This was followed by a chaotic mix of science fiction, fantasy and horror. Heart received critical acclaim and Another War was nominated for a World Fantasy Award. After the publication of Lost Art, the writer`s career began in earnest: contracts, agents, deadlines, responsibility. Lost Art is a finalist for the Catalyst Award for Best Teenage Fiction.
