The Grave Thief, book 3 in the Twilight Reign, has a draft cover, not that I’ve actually finished the damn book but that’s something we’ll gloss over for the time being. This isn’t the final cover, I think the central figure is going to be completely changed, but I thought I might as well get people’s reactions to what we have thus far. So check it out and let me know what you think!
What I haven’t done recently is mention the books I’ve been reading recently, so here’s a quick summary of my recent consumption, in case you’re looking for something to read.
Olga’s Story – Stephanie Williams – an amazing true story and a great read, paled only for me because I’d read the proposal when it was first sold and that had much of the action packed in tight, so by comparison the book was drawn a bit further out.
Devil’s Peak – Deon Meyer – cracking read about a vigilante in South Africa, well worth it, not least because it’s a very sober story (apart from the detective in it) that doesn’t seem to sensationalize anything that’s going on, which makes it much more dignified than many of a similar ilk. Hmm, I don’t use the word ilk often enough.
Scar Night – Alan Campbell – well I’m halfway through this one, but I’m enjoying it thus far. Not as grim and claustrophobic as I’d like, but good. A rather softer sort of China Mieville perhaps (without trying to be disrespectful to Alan – I think China’s a better writer than I am at the moment too). Must say a big thank you to the guy who reviewed Twiglet on Amazon recently, simply for pointing out that yes it is meant to be claustrophobic, that was intended. I’m not sure everyone really got that…
Erm, before Olga’s Story I just can’t remember, Wintersmith probably, but big T hardly needs more publicity or sales anyway!
