Jeff Noon reads from Vurt

From the Tor blog

Debut fantasy author John Gwynne’s first novel is published by Tor UK on December 6th. Following in the footsteps of David Eddings and Robert Jordan, this coming-of-age high fantasy novel is a really epic read. We caught up with John to ask him a few questions about the novel and how it feels to be published.

Can you tell us a little bit about it and how long it took to write such a mammoth story?

Malice is an epic fantasy, with all that that suggests. Epic battles, sweeping landscapes, angels and demons, Machiavellian politics and a coming-of-age tale. Also I hope it has a human heart, telling a story about people and their passions. Epic and intimate was my goal.
