This week, I have a timely (for me) review of Ray Nayler’s The Mountain in the Sea – timely because it’s just been shortlisted for the Nebula. Let’s see what all the fuss is about. This fair and unbiased review was conducted based on a free proof copy provided by the publisher.
Long time no see! This week, I emerge from the reviewing wilderness to give my thoughts on Frontier by Grace Curtis, one of the first books from the newly formed Hodderscape imprint – you might be familiar with them through social media, where they are an active and cheerful participant.

Chris has been coy about the exact nature of the plot on social media, which has only made me more desperate to know what it’s about. Damn his craftiness. Allow me to… Read More Book Review: Stringers, by Chris Panatier
This week, I’m playing catch-up by reviewing a book which passed me by when it first came out in 2020.

It’s time to correct this slip up anyway, by finally tackling Simon… Read More Book Review: The Vanished Birds, by Simon Jimenez
