Small Press, Big Stories: Detox In Letters by Cheryl Low – Cover Reveal and Excerpt! 

When I spoke to Sarena at World Weaver Press last year we talked about Cheryl Low’s Vanity in Dust, which I reckoned was pitched like Moorcock’s End of Time characters in a more urban fantasy setting. That sounded more than fascinating enough to get added to the TBR mountain, and now it’s time to reveal […]

The Iron Ship by K. M. McKinley: Extract & Cover Art 

A few weeks ago I was sent a book called The Iron Ship, the first thing that struck me about this particular book was the fantastic cover art. It is far from your typical fantasy cover, but at the same time it is somewhat familiar. I think it reminds me of older adventure novels. As […]

The Glass Republic by Tom Pollock – Chapter Excerpt
