In 2070, nanotech longevity drugs have become the de-facto currency of a post-apocalyptic Earth. Glow is one such drug, addictive and all-controlling, with the devastating power to copy, edit, and paste memories from host to host.

On the streets of Coriolis City, Rex battles his addiction to Glow, and the beguiling, terrifying voices it puts in his head, all while fleeing drug liches, corrupt militia, and an unstoppable assassin sent down from space.

Above, an orbital empire wages war against Earth's forces, seeking ultimate control of the planet. In such a massive conflict, Rex's uncanny ability to resist Glow might just make him the key to changing the world.

Review quote

"Tim Jordan's Glow is a terrific read from a major new voice. A first-rate novel; I was enthralled." "A deftly written debut jewel of cyberpunk" "Running beneath the violent tangle of identity and memory is a fascinating exploration of how people cope - or fail to - with adversity." "A great story that does an interesting job of not cheating a lot on the science side." "Reminiscent of the best space opera mixed with the gritty, violent dystopia of cyberpunk."
