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.

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 […]

Helix Wars (book 2) by Eric Brown	(book review).

‘Helix Wars’ is the sequel to British SF author Eric Brown’s most popular novel ‘Helix’, published in 2007. Does it live up to its predecessor?

Weirdspace: The Devil’s Nebula by Eric Brown.

I have reviewed several of Eric Brown’s recent Science Fiction novels for SFCrowsnest over the last two years. All of them were published by Solaris and I enjoyed each one. ‘The Devil’s Nebula’ is his first for Solaris’ sister imprint Abaddon Books and starts a new shared universe series set in ‘Weird Space’. Can this […]
