Additional Information

When The Replican finds himself in 'The Park' he doesn't know what he is doing outside.

He doesn't know who he is. What he does know is that he has to get away from the killing machines.

As a mysterious man in a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette pursues him across the city, The Replican searches for the truth of who he is.
As his memories start to return, he is left with decisions to make and the question, If you were me what would you do?

Set in a new world, one where humans are hunted for food and on the brink of extinction.

The Replican is a dark tale of how far people will go to protect their future. 

Joseph McCann

I was asked the other day to try and describe the story line of the novel without giving anything away. One of the reasons why I released the free audio teaser of Chapter 1 on You Tube was to allow Gary Numan fan's to realise that it's more than just a Sci-fi horror novel. 


From the first chapter you feel that almost every character that you come across is in some way, Gary Numan. I wanted fans to feel as if they had just picked "Replicas" up for the first time ever and allow themselves to stroll carefully through all of Gary Numan's images and characters over the following years, all built around this very dark Sci-fi world.


I read books where I found the description of people and places went on far too long, the beauty of the mind of the Gary Numan fan means that in their own heads they already know the scene that I am trying to describe. They already feel the atmosphere of each setting for they have had 40 years of imagining this for themselves. 
"There stood on the sidewalk amongst the clearing of dust and fog was a man in a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette. Ahead of the Machman, the sharp shadow of a lamppost had faded into the darkness of the street he stood on"


I love Sci-fi, horror and Gary Numan, a combination which works well together. I prefer a story line that's moderately pacey so that no-one loses interest. Lyrics are cleverly interwoven to keep you smiling throughout rather than spoil the story line.

I also see things more visually which is why most people have subsequently told me that this novel would make a fantastic movie or TV series. You would need lots of Gary Numan lookalikes for this, so please form an orderly queue!


There is a Waterstone's signing coming up shortly and the master plan is to get this novel in all the book stores, Gary Numan everywhere you turn!


After meeting Gary Numan, he told me that he was very impressed with this novel and that he will be reading "The Replican". I do feel extremely honoured by this. He told me that his brother John also wanted a copy of it. Gary then asked me for the link so that he could listen to the free audio of Chapter 1. 


I am eternally grateful for all of your support, this novel is for those of you who want to become 'The Replican'. .
