Review: Anna Mercury by Warren Ellis

It’s one volume that’s mostly setup for a larger series that never appeared, so I can’t recommend it for sheer pleasure…… Continue reading Review: Anna Mercury by Warren Ellis

Three Comics by Tom Gauld

Serendipity, my friends. I happened to see Mooncop by Tom Gauld at work, it looked vaguely familiar and like something I would enjoy, and I had a spare half hour, so I read it. And it was great and I’ve now read the only other two I could find at the library and I love Tom Gauld…… Continue reading Three Comics by Tom Gauld

Review: Airborn by Kenneth Oppel

You may recall how much I loved the book Airman by Eoin Colfer back in May. The adventure, the embrace of science, the intense writing and journey the protagonist goes through. It was also one of the best audiobooks I’d heard. So, since then I’ve been looking for readalikes, and one of the first I selected…… Continue reading Review: Airborn by Kenneth Oppel
