Synopsis of Cowl

n the far future, the Heliothane Dominion is triumphant in the solar system, after a bitter war with their Umbrathane progenitors. But some of the enemy have escaped into the past, intent on wreaking havoc across time. The worst of these is Cowl, an artifically forced advance in human evolution.

Reviews of Cowl


Asher's style and plot build to a satisfying climax and I came out at the end with a very good impression. -- Tomas L. Martin, SF Crowsnest

It is clear now that this is a writer who, having established his own fresh, original and highly energised brand of science fiction, isn't going to fade into obscurity. -- John Berlyne, SFRevu
