I’ve now caught up with the third volume, ‘Insights’. PS Publishing have done the same excellent job on the book’s production and presentation, as […]

The Spacetime Pit Plus Two by Stephen Baxter and Eric Brown (book review).

I’ve been a fan of Eric Brown’s character-based Science Fiction and Stephen Baxter’s hard SF stories for many years but had no idea that these two luminaries of British SF had ever collaborated. So when I heard that the small press Infinity Plus Books was bringing out ‘The Spacetime Pit Plus Two’, a book collection […]

Sacrifice On Spica III (The Telemass Quartet, Part Two) by Eric Brown (book review).

‘Sacrifice On Spica III’ is the second novella in Eric Brown’s ‘Telemass Quartet’, following on from ‘Famadihana On Fomalhaut IV’, which I reviewed here in August. Like its predecessor, the hardback is a gorgeous collectible. It is beautifully bound and features an arresting wraparound cover image by Tomislav Tikulin of a train thundering away from […]

Jani And The Greater Game by Eric Brown (book review).

Eric Brown is a prolific British novelist, most of whose books fall firmly within the category of Science Fiction. He does, however, write in genres other than SF, having recently had a couple of crime novels published. It was, nonetheless, still a surprise to find out that his latest book, ‘Jani And The Greater Game’, […]

‘Satan’s Reach’ is the second novel set in the ‘Weird Space’ universe created for Abaddon Books by Eric Brown. It follows on from ‘The Devil’s Nebula’, also penned by Brown, which I reviewed for SFCrowsnest in August 2012. Although there don’t initially appear to be any links between the two novels, other than being set […]

The Serene Invasion by Eric Brown (book review).

‘The Serene Invasion’ is the latest space opera to come from the pen of prolific British Science Fiction author Eric Brown. Quite how prolific he is becomes clear when you turn to page three of this volume, where the list of his previous books has had to be printed in a smaller font than the […]
