Knocking on Heaven's Door

Knocking on Heaven's Door

From the bestselling author of An Obsession with Butterflies comes a dystopian sci-fi novel set two hundred years in the future...

In my opinion Sharman Apt Russell's Knocking on Heaven's Door rivals only the brilliance of Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and Camus' The Outsider. I am honoured to have been included in the appraisal pages of the book...


'A bed of bones, a sea of ash'... a new age in science and a world reborn - the backdrop of Sharman Apt Russell’s literary masterpiece, Knocking on Heaven’s Door. So immersive and profound is this beautiful tale of discovery that it guarantees to inspire the metaphysicist in every reader. Russell’s implementation of panpsychist theory brings this book to life as one of the most extraordinary sci-fis of our time… Rich with philosophical themes.
