Pursuing a fugitive space monster, a Being of Light enters Earth’s atmosphere. Accidentally colliding with a patrolling jet, piloted by Science Patrol Agent Shin Hayata, the Being merges with the pilot to save his life and vows to defend the Earth.
Now whenever the planet is threatened by alien invaders, terrifying monsters or any threat beyond the capabilities of humanity, Shin Hayata transforms into the towering Ultraman to restore peace and save the day.
Dive into the action-packed adventure as told by Hugo, Clarke and Scribe Award-winning author Pat Cadigan.
In the not-too-distant future, Earth is besieged by aliens. However, the mysterious Dan Moroboshi comes to the defense of humanity, transforming into his true form—the towering Ultraseven—when the planet is endangered. Alongside his allies, the six elite soldiers of the Terrestrial Defense Force, Ultraseven will give everything he has to stop the myriad of foes who are prepared to bring ruin and destruction to the people of Earth.
Adapting the classic and genre-defining series Ultraseven in the ever popular Ultraman mega-saga, Hugo and Scribe award-winning author Pat Cadigan brings a fresh take to the iconic and action-packed adventures of Earth’s monster-battling savior.
About the author
“I swear they told me I was terminal...but that was back in December 2014. What can I say? Heaven doesn’t want me and Hell’s afraid I’ll take over.”
Pat Cadigan won the Arthur C. Clarke Award twice for her novels Synners and Fools, and most recently, the Scribe Award for Best Novelisation for Alita Battle Angel. She has also won three Locus Awards––best short story for "Angel," best collection for Patterns, and best novelette for "The Girl-Thing Who Went Out For Sushi,", which also won the Hugo Award and Japan's Seiun Award; it can be found in Edge of Infinity, edited by Jonathan Strahan. Most often identified as one of the original cyberpunk writers––the Guardian called her The Queen of Cyberpunk––her work includes fantasy, horror, young adult, and nonfiction.
Born in New York, she grew up in Massachusetts but spent most of her adult life in the Kansas City area, where she worked for ten years at Hallmark Cards, Inc., writing greeting cards, often in perfect iambic pentameter. She now lives in gritty, urban north London with her husband, the Original Chris Fowler, and takes pride in the accomplishments of her son, musician, composer, and nonfiction writer Robert Fenner.
Along with her media tie-in writing, Cadigan is working on two new original novels––working titles: See You When You Get There and Truth & Bone––while she makes terminal cancer her bitch. Diagnosed in late 2014 with an inoperable and incurable form of recurrent endometrial cancer, she was given at most two years to live. After she underwent what was supposed to have been strictly palliative chemotherapy in early 2015, however, doctors were forced to revise their estimates from 'two years or less' to 'Someday, maybe––hey, we just work here'.
When asked for comment, Cadigan, who has already returned from the dead after a severe case of anaphylactic shock, said, “Each of us was put on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things. I’m now so far behind that I can never die.”
She has been keeping a blog called 'Ceci N'est Pas Une Blog––Dispatches From Cancerland' at patcadigan.wordpress.com about her adventures as a cancer patient; she promises that it's not a bummer. In fact, some of it is even funny. She can also be found on Facebook and tweets as @cadigan and just about everything there is funny, too.
Cadigan’s latest work is the novelisation of William Gibson’s unproduced screenplay for what would have been the third Aliens movie, published 31 August 2021. (Spoiler Alert: it’s not the third Aliens movie that you saw in the theatre, on video, or in your nightmares.) In fact, Gibson did two drafts of the screenplay; this novelisation is his first draft. The second draft was very different and was adapted as a graphic novel by Dark Horse, starring the fabulous artwork of Johnny Christmas. Cadigan thinks you should own both, because.
Thanks to Gollancz’s high successful Gateway eBook program, all of Cadigan’s original novels are available electronically. Other books, such the two making-of movie books she was commissioned to write—The Making of Lost in Space and The Resurrection of the Mummy—are available through third-party sellers. Support independent and second-hand book-dealers whenever possible. You can’t get everything in electronic format. Also, before eBooks came along, second-hand book dealers prevented many good writers from disappearing altogether. Ebooks are great because you can take hundreds of them with you on an airplane without worrying about the weight allowance but it’s still great to have a book signed by your favourite author.
As a cancer patient (remember, she’s not in remission, just stubborn), Cadigan spent 2020 at home, thanks to the inconvenience of a global pandemic. She got a lot of writing done, but not a lot of housework, because seriously? Are you kidding? Sightings continued to be scarce during 2021. Cadigan hoped to get around more in 2022 but didn’t. Maybe 2023 will be more fortuitous.
In 2020, she was nominated for the Scribe Award for Alita Battle Angel, and was delighted when she won. She says that her editor, Ella J Chappell was crucial in helping her produce her best work possible. Like Ellen Datlow and Gardner Dozois, Ms Chappell has become a lasting influence on Cadigan’s work in general.
In 2022, she was again nominated for the Scribe Award for Alien 3, the novelization of William Gibson’s unproduced screenplay. Nominees and winners were announced at the San Diego Comic Con and to her even greater delight, she won again. A full list of winners is available here: https://iamtw.org/2022-scribe-award-winners/ along with a link to the full list of nominees for 2022 as well as results from previous years.
