Real life has once again got in the way of writing reviews, at least it has today so you'll have to wait until tomorrow for a post along those lines. There will be one though! In the meantime, advance copies for 2012 releases are starting to come through the door so I thought I'd showcase them here, just to give you all a little heads up on what's headed your way in the New Year. There will be titles that I'm really excited about but, if I'm going to do this properly (based on whatever comes through the letterbox), there will also be titles that leave me feeling absolutely nothing whatsover. Take 'Tribulations' for example (due for release in January)...
The world has ended…. The war is only beginning.
An asteroid storm has obliterated the Earth. Billy and Linda West have built enough space-going arks to save a small number of people who now roam the void in search of a new home.
Desperate to find a safe haven, Billy makes a dangerous attempt to exceed the speed of light. When his plans go terribly wrong, the Wests’ severely-damaged ship is separated from the fleet and left drifting near a mysterious planet.
This world’s conditions are hospitable—but its inhabitants are not. Suddenly the Wests and their fellow survivors are caught in the middle of an ancient war between two brutal nations. Faced with horrific dangers, they are forced to choose a side just to survive.
So, a bland cover and a blurb that reminds me a little too much of 'Lost in Space'. I was never really that bothered by 'Lost in Space' so I won't be reading 'Tribulations' (especially after a search for Ken Shufeldt on Amazon showed what most people thought of his last book...)
'Tribulations' might well be your thing though so it gets a mention here. Do you think you'll be picking it up?
