Dave Hutchinson's Fractured Europe cover gallery

Europe in Autumn

Solaris ‎ 978-178108195-2, 28 Jan 2014, 384pp, £7.99. Available from Amazon.
Europe as we know it is gone.
Devastated by a flu pandemic and crippled by economic collapse, the continent has fractured into countless tiny nations, a fragile web of shifting alliances seething with espionage and strange new technologies.
    In a small restaurant in Krakow, chef Rudi is drawn into a new career with Les Coureurs des Bois, a shadowy organisation that will move anything across any state line – for a price.
    Soon, Rudi is in a world of high-risk smuggling operations, where kidnappings and double-crosses are as natural as a map that constantly redraws itself.

Europe at Midnight
Solaris 978-178108398-7, 5 Nov 2015, 304pp, £7.99. Available via Amazon.
In a fractured Europe, new nations are springing up everywhere, some literally overnight.
    For an intelligence officer like Jim, it’s a nightmare. Every week or so a friendly power spawns a new and unknown national entity which may or may not be friendly to England’s interests. It’s hard to keep on top of it all. But things are about to get worse for Jim.
   A stabbing on a London bus pitches him into a world where his intelligence service is preparing for war with another universe, and a man has come who may hold the key to unlocking Europe’s most jealously-guarded secret…
   Nominated for the Arthur C. Clarke and British Science Fiction Awards

Europe in Winter
Solaris 978-178108463-2, 3 Nov 2016, 320pp, £7.99. Available via Amazon.
Winner of the 2016 BSFA Award for Best Novella
Fractured Europe. A Parallel World. A Global Threat.
Union has come. The Community is now the largest nation in Europe; trains run there from as far afield as London and Prague. It is an era of unprecedented peace and prosperity.
    So what is the reason for a huge terrorist outrage? Why do the Community and Europe meet in secret, exchanging hostages? And who are Les Coureurs des Bois?
    Along with a motley crew of strays and mafiosi and sleeper agents, Rudi sets out to answer these questions – only to discover that the truth lies both closer to home and farther away than anyone could possibly imagine.

Europe at Dawn
Solaris 978-178108609-4, 1 Nov 2018, 320pp, £7.99. Available via Amazon.
In Tallinn, Alice – a junior Scottish diplomat – is drawn into an incomprehensible plot spanning decades. In the Aegean, young refugee Benno makes a desperate break for freedom and finds himself in a strange new life. On the canals of England, a fleet of narrow boats is gathering. Rudi, now a seasoned Coureur, finds himself drawn away from the kitchen one last time as he sets out with his ally Rupert in pursuit of a dead man.
