BenHWintersUndergroundAirlinesInterview

Alternative Magazine Online reviewed alternative history/speculative fiction novel Underground Airlines in June 2016, describing it as “a powerful, often uncomfortable novel that isn’t always easy to read, but is never anything less than utterly engrossing.” Written by the award-winning author of the Last Policeman trilogy (The Last Policeman, Countdown City, World of Trouble), Underground Airlines is set in the present day with one key difference to the world as we know it – slavery still exists. It’s yet another bold and exciting premise from a hugely talented storyteller.
