Notă biografică

Bernard Beckett, born in 1967, is a high school teacher based in Wellington, New Zealand. Genesis was written while he was on a Royal Society Fellowship investigating DNA mutations. It won the New Zealand Post Book Award for Young Adults and the Esther Glen Award.


"This novel is one of the best I have ever read. Beckett is every fiction fan’s ideal philosopher, the type of writer who entertains as much as he questions. Fans of Vernor Vinge or Isaac Asimov will enjoy 'Genesis.' The creative construction of the novel should delight students of literature, as it will readers who enjoyed dystopian novels like Cormac McCarthy’s 'The Road' or Kit Reed’s 'Enclave.' Bernard Beckett is an amazing new talent in science fiction. 'Genesis' is a must-read." -

"Enjoyable science fiction, which tackles its core issue in a succinct head-on intellectual argument, and then wraps it up with a surprisingly emotional ending." -- Big Dumb Object

"Highly original, sinewy and cerebral, this remarkable thriller fuses intricate ideas with real emotion and suspense. I found it fascinating and thought-provoking - it gripped me like a vise." --Jonathan Stroud, author of the Bartimaeus Trilogy

"More successfully than any other novel I've read recently, Bernard Beckett's Genesis epitomizes the investigative ideal of science fiction. By any standards it's a short novel and at 150 pages is perhaps more truly a novella, but in a genre given to overinflated, ponderous tomes screaming out for an editor wielding a samurai sword, there's a refreshing efficency to Beckett's writing. Nothing superfluous, nothing wasted...this is intelligent and thought-provoking SF at its best." -- SFF Media
"GENESIS is an intense intellecutal exercise that is not for the phsycially or emotionally squeamish. So little seems to happen in it, in the sense of present-tense action; but so much of greater importance takes place that this is one of those novels that continue to resonate long after they are over." --
