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. If a futuristic Western sounds… Read More Book Review: Frontier, by Grace Curtis

It’s the return of a familiar face this week, as I get to grips with one of Alastair Reynolds’ newest novels.

This week, I’m reviewing the sequel to one of my top ten books of last year. Tim Pratt’s Doors of Sleep impressed me with its breezy narrative and loveable characters, but will Prison of Sleep be able to repeat the trick? Read on to find out!
It’s Monday, and I’m posting, so that can only mean one thing – it’s Music Monday! Music Monday is the original idea of Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek, and this is my adapted take on it, in which I pick an album to go with a book. Sometimes they’re linked very literally by the… Read More Music Monday: Stringers, by Chris Panatier
This week’s book needs no introduction, but I’m going to do one anyway because something has to go in this space. It’s the Hugo and Locus Award-winning Hyperion. I’m sure we’ve all been left cold by award winners before though – could it be the case for me with Hyperion? If you follow me on… Read More Book Review: Hyperion, by Dan Simmons
