Críticas:

Since his ferocious debut novel Altered Carbon roared into town, Richard Morgan has been at the forefront of this breed of full-on, edgy science fiction, and his latest tech-noir thriller is also looking dangerously like his best yet. Smart, gripping, and downright indispensable¿ the search for the best sci-fi thriller of 2007 might just have come to an end¿ (SFX)

¿Richard Morgan writes pumped-up steroid fuelled cyber punk. This is an unashamedly male, rip-roaring boy¿s own thriller for the 21st century. If Andy McNab ate a year¿s worth of issues of New Scientist, this is the kind of stuff he might write afterwards. Black Man is kick-ass SF from the hard end of the spectrum.¿ (DEATHRAY)

Brilliantly plotted and unremittingly violent. (Eric Brown THE GUARDIAN)

BLACK MAN is exciting and extremely violent but is driven by passionate moral concerns. (Lisa Tuttle THE TIMES)

Richard Morgan has produced a stunning book with this girtty tech-noir thriller. Exciting and thought-provoking, this is destined to be a science fiction classic. (ABERDEEN EVENING EXPRESS)

There are some aspects of BLACK MAN which are strikingly effective. As always, he writes action well. (Anthony Brown STARBURST)

"He certainly knows how to write a cracking yarn. It grabs hold of you and won't let go." (Dave Golder BBC Focus)

This is his best since Altered Carbon. (EDGE)

Reseña del editor:

One hundred years from now, and against all the odds, Earth has found a new stability; the political order has reached some sort of balance, and the new colony on Mars is growing. But the fraught years of the 21st century have left an uneasy legacy . . .

Genetically engineered alpha males, designed to fight the century's wars have no wars to fight and are surplus to requirements. And a man bred and designed to fight is a dangerous man to have around in peacetime. Many of them have left for Mars but now one has come back and killed everyone else on the shuttle he returned in.

Only one man, a genengineered ex-soldier himself, can hunt him down and so begins a frenetic man-hunt and a battle survival. And a search for the truth about what was really done with the world's last soldiers.

BLACK MAN is an unstoppable SF thriller but it is also a novel about predjudice, about the ramifications of playing with our genetic blue-print. It is about our capacity for violence but more worrying, our capacity for deceit and corruption.

This is another landmark of modern SF from one of its most exciting and commercial authors.
