Anyway, we have another plethora of reviews and bumf for you today. So hold tightly to your seats...
- Eric Brown at The Guardian has written these great reviews of Age of Zeus...
"This is the kind of complex, action-oriented SF Dan Brown would write if Dan Brown could write."
"It's a bold attempt to counter the prevailing gloom of much current SF."
- TTA Press's Interzone 228 also includes reviews of both books (not on the site; you'll have to pick up the magazine):
"Lovegrove has fun with his premise, and he's not afraid to get in a few digs at the real world."
"If there's a stand of optimism that links the best stories in the collection is is something to do with human imagination, inventiveness and perseverance."
- Jim Dodge Jnr. at Mass Movement Magazine offers this glowing review of Justin Gustainis' Evil Ways:
"Just be ready to have a Hell of a good time!"
- Neale Monks at SF Crow's Nest posted this very warm review of Brian Lumley's The Lost Years: Harry and the Pirates...
"...should appeal to both Lumley fans and those who simply enjoy well-written horror fiction."
- ...while his colleague Patrick Mahon follows up on his previous review of Eric Brown's Necropath with this review of Xenopath.
"Jeff Vaughan's new-found optimism is a convincingly drawn testament to the transformative power of love and makes this a fundamentally uplifting book to read. "
- Joshua Hill at the Fantasy Book Review gives a positively gushing account of Paul Kearney's The Ten Thousand:
"Kearney captures all the best parts of fantasy – the young nobodies destined for glory, the gathering of a team, mercenaries, and exotic races and places – and combines them together with grit and realism and enough blood to drown a horse."
- SFX Magazine's summer 2010 issue 197 (again, you'll have to pick it up) includes a decent review of Ian Whates' The Noise Within.
"Whates has crafted a thoroughly entertaining space opera, set in a universe brimming with humans, AIs and, just maybe, something alien."
