In the distant future, humans wage war against the alien planet Caeorleia, with no tactic off-limits if it will help the humans get their hands on Caeorleia´s resources. Ask Ryker. He thought he volunteered for a simple experiment that would help his government in the war. He didn´t realize sadistic doctors would turn him into the experiment - by injecting him with blood from a captured Caeorleian, Seral Iorflas. Nor did Ryker realize he´d be sent to sabotage a planet full of the very beings his world is battling, beings who kill humans on sight. But then, thanks to the experiment that irrevocably changed him, he isn´t exactly human any longer - and with each passing day, as his blood bond with Seral strengthens, he´s less and less sure as to whose side he´s on. 1.

He is determined to study the effects of prolonged solitude on another human being, though before now Powyss´ sole subjects have been the plants in his greenhouse. He fills three rooms beneath Moreham House with books, paintings and even a pianoforte, then puts out an advertisement, hoping for a gentleman recluse to claim the substantial reward.The only man desperate enough to apply is John Warlow, a semi-literate farm labourer who needs to support his wife, Hannah, and their six children. Cut off from nature and the turning of the seasons, Warlow soon begins losing his grip on sanity. Aboveground, Powyss finds yet another distraction from his greenhouse in the form of Hannah, with whom he rapidly becomes obsessed. Does she return his feelings, or is she just afraid of his power over her family´s lives? Meanwhile, the servants are brewing up a rebellion inspired by recent news from across the Channel. Powyss may have set events in motion, but he is powerless to prevent their explosive and devastating conclusion.Elegantly told and utterly transporting, The Warlow Experiment is an outstanding literary novel that announces a major new voice in British fiction. 1.
