Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide To Creating Imaginative Fiction: Revised & Expanded by Jeff Vandermeer (book review).

I never read Jeff Vandermeer’s original release of this book, ‘Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide To Creating Imaginative Fiction: Revised & Expanded’, but I became curious as to what he has to say about writing. He isn’t alone here as he ropes in a lot of writers he knows to also give their opinions. There are […]

Obsidio – The Illuminae Files part 3 by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (book review).

‘Obsidio’ is the third and final book in ‘The Illuminae Files’. Please don’t read this review unless you’ve read Illuminae’ and ‘Gemina’, or there may be spoilers and most of it probably won’t make much sense to you neither. This time, along with some of the people from books one and two, we are following […]

The Last Sun (The Tarot Sequence book #1) by K.D. Edwards (book review).

‘The Last Sun’ by K.D. Edwards is one of the most entertaining books I’ve read this year. It’s funny, exciting and heartwarming. I have an iffy relationship with Urban Fantasy, but decided to pick this one up based on the characters and the premise. Both delivered. Briefly, Rune Saint John is ‘the last Sun’, the […]
