Implied Spaces by Walter Jon Williams

First up a big thanks to Graeme for sending this on to me after he had finished it a while back. His review was great and made Implied Spaces the exact sort of thing I thought I would enjoy – it didn’t disappoint! Although it’s taken me a while to get around to, I couldn’t be more thankful to Graeme for passing it my way! Continue reading “Implied Spaces by Walter Jon Williams”

Watching Trees Grow by Peter F Hamilton

After reading Vault of Deeds (a novella by James Barclay from PS Publishing) last week and enjoying it so much I picked Watching Trees Grow up off the shelf as a nice and short bedtime read. I’ve read it before so I knew what was coming, but it still doesn’t take away the fact that this is a great little read :) Continue reading “Watching Trees Grow by Peter F Hamilton”

Vault of Deeds by James Barclay

The Vault of Deeds, the place where all tales and stories of heroes are recorded. Their great battles, their formidable blades, their heroic speech.

Continue reading “Vault of Deeds by James Barclay”

Titanicus by Dan Abnett

When the vital forge world of Orestes comes under attack by a legion of Chaos Titans, the planet is forced to appeal for help. Titan Legio Invicta, although fresh from combat and in desperate need of refit and repair, responds, committing its own force of war engines to the battle.

Space Captain Smith by Toby Frost

Isambard Smith has been drafted for a mission – to collect a passenger, Rhianna, for one planet and take her to another. He’s given a small, pretty pathetic ship, the John Pym, a pilot in Carveth, an android and former sex-bot that is on the run, and he brings along his alien friend, Suruk the Slayer, an M’Lak with an unhealthy obsession with collecting skulls. Continue reading “Space Captain Smith by Toby Frost”

Cell by Stephen King

An event, the Pulse, hits the world and throws it into mayhem. Everyone using a mobile phone at the time (or afterwards) is affected and the majority of those attack each other and the normal people left behind. The streets aren’t a safe place to wander and locking yourself up in a secure house might be the one thing that keeps you alive, at least in the beginning. Continue reading “Cell by Stephen King”

An interview with Peter F Hamilton

Peter F Hamilton very kindly took some time out from his busy schedule to answer a few questions from me, mainly very general but I tried where possible to not ask the usual ones (except the future novels question, that seems almost mandatory) and wanted to focus only on the Void trilogy. Thankfully Peter agreed and below is the result. I hope you enjoy, there a few tidbits for the Temporal Void and hints at what to expect in volume three.
