Normal Service Resumes…

Well, you call it ‘normal’… I’m swapping the wailing cries of a newborn baby trying to make her way in the world for the wailing cries of thousands of commuters trying to make their way to work during the rush hour. Yep, back to work today. Whoopee…

If there’s one bright spark in all of this it’s that I’ll have time to read a few more books on the way to and from work so the blog will be looking a little more like it should over the next few days. Thanks for sticking around by the way; I really appreciate it!

I did manage to get some bits and pieces read over the last few days and they’re what you can expect to see reviewed over the next day or two. Rob Sanders’ ‘Redemption Corps’ was one such book and so was Steve Hockensmith’s ‘Dawn of the Dreadfuls’ (a prequel to ‘Pride, Prejudice and Zombies’). Also keep an eye open for ‘Robo-Hunter Vol. 2’, a book that I thought wasn’t going to be up to much but ended up proving me very much wrong…

While reviews for those books are being posted, I’m in and out of China Mieville’s ‘Kraken’, Jon Sprunk’s ‘Shadow’s Son’ and Ian Tregillis’ ‘Bitter Seeds’. I can’t settle on one book at the moment so I’m having a little bit of everything :o)

What’s in the pipeline over the next few weeks? My not so trusty camera phone will tell you…





'Anubis Gates' won the vote from the other week so it's going in the pile before I forget (again)!



'The Left Hand of God' can't be as bad as everyone says... can it? I'll find out one way or the other...



This is the immediate reading pile and there’s a good few weeks worth of reading there! (Subject to change of course if anything suitably juicy comes through the post…) The sharper eyed amongst you will notice that ‘Dust of Dreams’ has found its way back into the pile again. The more cynical amongst you will no doubt chuckle at my earnest declaration that this time will be the time I finish it. I fancy my chances this time though, lets see what happens…

Other than the three books I’ve got on the go at the moment, there’s no real order to what I’ll be reading over the next couple of weeks. Is there anything there that you would like to see me have a go at first?

Would like your comments on Adrian Tchaikovsky's Shadows Of The Apt. I was really impressed with the the other books in the series.

I'm looking forward to the comments on "Left Hand of God" since I read that myself a few weeks back but can't really make my mind up if it's just great or if it's really not great at all.
