A Perfect Blend: The Seven by Peter Newman

A Perfect Blend: The Seven by Peter Newman

Seven is a magical number. Indeed, a 2014 survey found that seven is the world’s favourite number. Perhaps that is why the world of film and books has known so many sevens; from seven brides to seven brothers, from the secret seven to the magnificent seven, from the seven sons of Feanor to the se7en […]

You know that a book deserves your attention when Mark Lawrence says that it’s “the best thing he’s read in quite a while.” You know that you have to read said book when it wins the David Gemmell Morningstar Award for Best Newcomer. The book in question is none other than The Vagrant, and today […]

Covers count; every author knows this. Covers can make you buy books, they pose questions, raise mysteries – draw in the eye and the imagination. It is rare, however, for the cover of one book to make you buy a different book, but so it was with me this weekend. Later this month, the final […]

In The Vagrant, Newman flouted convention with a present tense story of a protagonist who was not only mute, but whose point of view we never saw.

After recently enjoying the latest Mad Max movie, I was immediately struck with the feeling that this would be a fantasy equivalent, swapping engines for horses and guns for swords. The Vagrant’s cover depicts the man himself, […]

Stephen King may have had a point when he wrote that talk is “sneaky”. Although we’re often told that the majority of communication is nonverbal (93 percent is the popular figure), the concept of having a voice is often linked with ideas such as freedom, justice and identity that make being without it a huge […]
