Stars and Bones (2022)
(Stars and Bones, book 1)
Gareth L Powell
"Big ships, big ideas and big emotions. Thrilling space opera which is epic in scope, yet always rooted at the human level, as all the best sci-fi is."

The Affair of the Mysterious Letter (2019)
Alexis Hall
"I haven’t been so enchanted and delighted by a book in years. It’s like the literary equivalent of being wrapped in a blanket and being driven in a horse drawn carriage through a magical park filled with the most amazing things happening all around and feeling safe and loved all the way through. A sheer delight from start to finish and the most perfect blend of gentle humour, wild creativity and love for the feel of Sherlock Holmes."

Virology (2017)
Ren Warom
"A deeply immersive and thrilling trip into a terrifying future."
