Princess Of Blood (Book 2 of The God Fragments) by The God Fragments (book review).

I reviewed ‘Stranger Of Tempest’, book one of Tom Lloyd’s ‘The God Fragments’ trilogy, back in March (https://www.sfcrowsnest.info/stranger-of-tempest-book-one-of-the-god-fragments-by-tom-lloyd-book-review/), noting that it was a fast paced chase through an intriguing world only slightly let down by taking way too long for the protagonist, Lynx, to actually want something. Book two of the trilogy ‘Princess Of Blood’ […]

The Life And Art Of Alfred Kubin (book review).

I have to confess I bought my copy of ‘The Life And Art Of Alfred Kubin’ and can’t really remember where I pulled my copy from. As it is also a Dover Publication, I suspect when the lockdown eases, they’ll no doubt get a reprint back into circulation as they like artbooks. Alfred Kubin (1877-1959) […]
