Philip Purser-Hallard’s urban-fantasy-political-thriller series, the Devices Trilogy, pits 21st-century avatars of the Knights of the Round Table against those of Robin Hood’s Merry Men in a battle for the soul of Britain. The Pendragon Protocol (2014) and The Locksley Exploit (2015) are concluded by Trojans (2016).
Phil has written short stories, novellas and a novel in various shared universes, most notably those of Doctor Who and Sherlock Holmes. He has edited six short-story anthologies for Obverse Books. Five of these are set in his techno-eschatological utopia, the City of the Saved, the most recent being Tales of the Civil War (2016). He also edits Obverse’s Black Archive series of critical anthologies on Doctor Who stories. In his day job for the civil service he edits official documents, which tend to be a little less exciting.
