Officially launched at Heffers on Thursday, June 21, with a talk from the author followed by a signing session, the book explores a Britain that has evolved into a police state in which the freedoms of the past have disappeared. The three principal characters – Percy, Henry and Frank – interact in a world of gradual dehumanisation.

Phillip graduated from St John’s College with a PhD in philosophy and has previously published works of non-fiction, including the trilogy The Gods of Our Time, Dreams and Illusions Revisited, and The Mountain Dwellers.

After his talk, Phillip told the Cambridge Independent: “I think it was a good turnout. Some people I’ve never met before and some friends, some students, some colleagues – they were very supportive.”

He continued: “Despite my throat infection, I think I managed to convey most of the basic thoughts that I wanted to convey [in the talk].

“I just hope now that people will help to spread the word and, if possible, write reviews – a bad review is better than no review at all – to get the book some publicity and get other people interested in it.”

The Mirror Men is available now at Heffers and online.
