Review: Empire State by Adam Christopher

| 13. Januar 2012

At times I have these premonitions, I simply know when something is going to be good. When I first read about Empire State by Adam Christopher on the Angry Robot Books blog, I thought it could be a fun read. Turns out, my premonition was a bit off the mark. Empire State is not a […]

Angry Robot Books is doing it again!

| 14. Dezember 2011

Right, my favourite publisher is doing it again (as if they ever stopped): Releasing fantastic books. Now, my preference for Angry Robot Books has several reasons: They’ve got Lavie Tidhar They’ve got Guy Adams They’ve got Dan Abnett They are based in Nottingham (home sweet home…) I have thus far not encountered a single book […]

Non-Steampunk Review: Guy Adams’ Restoration

| 29. Mai 2011
