The Quantum War by Derek Künsken

Only available as part of a set, this is a signed, deluxe, limited edition hardcover of book three in The Quantum Evolution series.


The war rages onward and the Union’s premier fighter pilots, the Homo Eridanus, start encountering deadly resistance from strange pilots on the Congregate side.  Among wreckage, they find that new Congregate pilots are, in fact, Homo quantus, with strange wiring and AI connections.

At the same time, the Puppets come to the Union with offers of an alliance for a dangerous price: the rescue of the geneticist Antonio Del Casal who is a captive on Venus, with over a hundred Homo quantus.

Only one person might be able to break through the Congregate defenses at Venus, and he’s a con man.

Peer & Press Reviews

The story is, well I won’t get into it. But it’s a marvellous blend of high concept science fiction, personal stakes, and politics, blood and fire…  Questions are asked about how we define humanity.  About what atrocities are justifiable, for whom, and under what circumstances – and some of them are skin-crawlingly awful, and performed under high stakes by individuals who may or may not know better…  In the end, this is another fine entry in a series filled with interesting ideas, fascinating people, and intriguing stories.

Edition background

This true limited edition of only 300 copies was commissioned by a leading online bookshop working in association with the publisher.  As the original title went straight to paperback, along with any later reprints, this is the only hardcover edition available globally.

Each book is signed, and hand numbered on a signature page tipped-in after the front free endpaper.  Printed on this page are the words:
‘This Deluxe Limited Edition of THE QUANTUM WAR by Derek Künsken, signed by the author, is limited to 300 numbered copies and 26 lettered copies’.

Edition features

This upscale limited edition has the following features:

  • The signature page showcases a small, full colour image that’s a major aspect of the dust jacket artwork.
  • The books are printed using the offset lithography process to give consistent, high quality print.
  • Printed on Munken Pure 80gsm paper.  This is a woodfree, age resistant, archival quality paper.
  • The books have Smyth sewn signatures.  The result of this process is the book will keep its shape and last longer.
  • Boards covered in Van Heek’s Premium Metallium Bronze fabric, which has a smooth surface that’s ideal for printing.
  • Gold foil printing is used on the spine for the book’s title, the name of the author and the publisher’s logo.
  • The endpapers are a metallic bronze colour, while the decorative head and tail bands are charcoal coloured.
  • The jacket has a high-quality, ‘velvet-feel’ SuperMatt laminate finish with spot UV / UV varnish detailing.
