If you kept up with my review of ‘Pawn’ this month, the sequel ‘Knight’ was released this year. Nicole Hammond is both a Sibyl and Protector on the alien starship Fyrantha. Her selection and abduction to this role is based on her ability to communicate with the starship when she doses herself with a throat […]

There is never going to be total harmony and, as […]

Beneath The World, A Sea by Chris Beckett (book review).

When I read the cover blurb for Chis Beckett’s new novel ‘Beneath The World, A Sea’, it seemed vaguely familiar. A British policeman is sent to investigate the killings of the indigenous species of the Submundo Delta, the Muendes, whom the local human populace do not consider to be sentient. The Muendes mess with their […]

Genesis by Geoffrey Carr (book review).

I actually bought this book at Eastercon, at a launch party put on by Elsewhen Press. When I started reading it I thought I’m glad I don’t have to review this book as I’m not really the right person for it! Because it was clear at once, even from the cover with a green hand […]
