The Electric Theatre
Twenty-five years in the future and our planet is facing a natural Armageddon, as the magnetic field that protects the earth is failing.
A team of brilliant scientists race against time to stop it happening, but face a fanatical group, with their own endgame, intent on ensuring the project fails.
Quantum physicist and broadcaster Professor Jim Al-Khalili, based at the University of Surrey, combines gripping storytelling with mind-blowing science in Sunfall, his ‘what-if’ debut thriller with a chilling USP – it could really happen.
Marcus Berkmann is a writer and journalist, and author of Set Phasers to Stun: 50 Years of Star Trek. His latest book, Berkmann’s Cricketing Miscellany, was published in the summer.
