The man. The myth.

The hair.

(Let’s be honest, it’s mainly about the hair…)


Alexander Gordon Smith

is the author of twelve novels—including the Escape From Furnace series, which is loved by millions of readers worldwide. His other books include The Inventors, The Fury, and The Devil’s Engine series. He is passionate about the benefits that reading and writing bring to people of all ages, and runs creative writing talks and workshops across the world. He lives in Norwich, England, with his wife and four daughters.

His hair is a sentient creature that modern science is struggling to understand.
