About The Sun Casts No Shadow

Wellington Thorneycroft is content picking pockets, taking Ambrosia, screwing prostitutes, and simply surviving in the hellish, walled City. But everything changes when he spots a spectral woman who wordlessly conveys the message: We’ll escape together. Suddenly, Thorneycroft’s life is turned upside down as he’s pulled along a circuitous path to an unknowable freedom: a path marked by violence, sex, and metaphysical dread.


Praise for The Sun Casts No Shadow

Kirkus Reviews called The Sun Casts No Shadow: “A dark, stylish tale that revels in its ambiguity.” The Portland Book Review wrote: “Richardson has produced an exceptional work that readers will relish and avidly share for years to come.”

Rating: 5 out of 5.

“Mark Richardson writes spare, sharp and unapologetic prose, and he tells about broken people in broken places. In THE SUN CASTS NO SHADOW, he’s done it again. The frailties of the human condition are on full display–sans judgment–and the depravity is wondrous. I am looking forward to what he writes next.” Greg Bardsley, author of CASH OUT, on Amazon
