Neal Asher - The Gabble
The curious creature that Neal Asher first introduced to Asimov’s in “Softly Spoke the Gabbleduck” (August 2005) reappears along with a new mystery in his latest story for us. Inspiration for the gabble stemmed from some ideas first arising in his novel The Line of Polity, then touched on in Brass Man, and now being pursued in his current book project policy Agent. Neal’s latest, non-gabble novel, The Voyage of the Sable Keech is just out from Tor. Another book, The Engineer Reconditioned is due out from Cosmos Books.
