Adrian Dawson

Adrian Dawson

Adrian Dawson (born 1971) is a British author of thriller and horror fiction, currently best known for his 2010 debut novel Codex.

Codex was written in 1999, and Dawson was signed to the Christopher Little Literary Agency, on the strength of the novel, but they failed to find a publisher. Codex deals with cryptology, religion and high-end technology, with one publisher stating that most readers would turn to non-fiction, rather than fiction for such subject matter - that self same publisher was thanked by Dan Brown in the 2003 published The Da Vinci Code.

However, with the advent of the iPad, Dawson's novel was published in ebook format where it stormed the UK iBookstore's Best Seller list and was printed in November 2010.

Dawson's second novel, Sequence, was released in the Uk on 5 September 2011 to wide critical acclaim, with Sci Fi Now! Magazine, calling Dawson "the new kid on the Block" and Terry Halligan of Eurocrime saying that Sequence is "a very powerful story, of an intensity which makes it the best that I've read this year".
