SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - FIRST CONTACT -

Ox­ford- based Iain Pears is the ideal au­thor to tackle the multi- nar­ra­tive of Arcadia – his hit his­tor­i­cal mur­der mys­tery, An In­stance Of The Finger­post, told the same story four times from dif­fer­ent points of view; The Dream Of Sci­pio in­ter­weaved three sto­ries; while Stone’s Fall’s three sto­ries were told back­wards. He’s per­haps best known, though, for his se­ries on de­tec­tive his­to­rian Jonathan Ar­gyll – mem­ber of the Ital­ian Art Squad and solver of an­cient art rid­dles.
