A Memory Called Empire (Teixcalaan series book 1) by Arkady Martine.

‘A Memory Called Empire’ is book one in the Teixcalaan series by Arkady Martine. Having said that, I felt that it could be read as a standalone. It is also Martine’s debut novel, something I found hard to believe as I was reading it as it was so well-written and accomplished. In ‘A Memory Called […]

American baby-boomers, most of them anyway, will recall the Golden Age of television that served as escapist entertainment during the turbulent times of the 1960s. As the real-life turmoil saturated the nation with race riots, assassinations, the Vietnam War, political chaos and college demonstrations, the small boob tube strived to take us into another direction […]

Rachel Armstrong’s second novel ‘Invisible Ecologies’ is subtitled ‘Songs Of The Ecocene II’ although, from what I could tell, it is unrelated to last year’s ‘Origamy’, which is now volume I of the series.
