Robert Scott-Norton writes high-octane sci-fi thrillers and is the creator of The Tombs Legacy, a universe of fiction.

A lifelong fan of Stephen King and Doctor Who, it was perhaps inevitable that his work would sit somewhere between horror and sci-fi.

Robert’s books all take place in this same story universe – The Tombs Legacy.

His debut sci-fi novel, The Face Stealer, is the first book in a series and sets up this fictional universe.

A second series, set in the future, looks at Southport one hundred years from now as repercussions from The Face Stealer start to be felt.
