Read full description of the books:
In an England two hundred years hence all children are brought up in single sex creches: the “Blocks.” Molly Zero, young and intelligent, resilient and loving, is a product of the “Blocks” and is destined for the Elite—the governing body of a country now crippled by martial law. She rebels and escapes, and we follow her through various adventures—in the apparent mundanity of small town life, joining the eccentric gaiety of the travelling gypsies, and on finally to the “trendy” nihilism of middle-class terrorism. Molly Zero is the story of her gradual awakening to the realities of responsibility and the price of caring.

Read information about the authorUsed These Alternate Names: Alistair Bevan , John Kingston , David Stringer
Keith John Kingston Roberts was a British science fiction author. He began publishing with two stories in the September 1964 issue of Science Fantasy magazine, "Anita" (the first of a series of stories featuring a teenage modern witch and her eccentric granny) and "Escapism.
Several of his early stories were written using the pseudonym Alistair Bevan. His second novel, Pavane, which is really a collection of linked stories, may be his most famous work: an alternate history novel in which the Roman Catholic Church takes control of England following the assassination of Queen Elizabeth I.
Roberts wrote numerous novels and short stories, and also worked as an illustrator. His artistic contributions include covers and interior artwork for New Worlds and Science Fantasy, later renamed Impulse. He also edited the last few issues of Impulse although the nominal editor was Harry Harrison.
In later life, Roberts lived in Salisbury. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1990, and died of its complications in October 2000. Obituaries recalled him as a talented but personally 'difficult' author, with a history of disputes with publishers, editors and colleagues.
