The Spares

Michael Marshall Smith is a British Novelist writing science fiction horror and modern fiction under the name Michael Marshall. I read his second book “The Spares” first published in 1996 after it was recommended to a friend of mine sometime around 1998. As well as having some of the most powerful imagery I'd read in a long time it was also sympathetic to many of the ideas I hold concerning the multi layering and over lapping of universes and the tendancy for human beings to play accross these realms. I have to date read all of Smiths novels and own an almost complete collection of his first editions. Smith is a cat lover who's eyes reach beyond and within the horizon.
