Hertford-based author Simon Lowe tells us about publishing his first novel The World is at War, Again
Looking for a fun but thought-provoking summer read? Then tune into our Local Lowdown Podcast to find out more about Hertford author Simon Lowe and his new book The World is at War, Again – a comic spy caper set in the futuristic Unified Nations where much of modern technology has been abandoned and a period of Great Regression is under way. Low level assassins Maria and Marco Fandanelli are sent overseas in a surprise promotion, while their son Peter is sent to a dilapidated boarding school. Meanwhile, reluctant assassin Chewti wanders the school grounds looking to avenge her mother’s death.
Simon also talks about being a Dad, his time as a bookseller, school librarian and a lost summer spent making insulation for the Millennium Dome.
