Locus Review & Courgettes

Stolen shamelessly from my agent’s site, here’s a scan of a review of Nights of Villjamur, in esteemed industry magazine Locus.

Thanks to Mark Yon who also spotted the really lovely review and brought it to my attention. If you’re not a Locus reader, click the image to see the whole review in full.

Otherwise here’s a quick snippet:

I’ll join the enthusiastic chorus for a work that deserves all the favourable notice it can get…

I look forward to whatever Mark Charan Newton has to offer, for he’s already the master of the SF/fantasy hybrid.

Well, it’s funny they should mention whatever I have to offer, because I’ve plenty of courgettes going at the moment. Seriously. Does anybody want one?

A lovely review but not one but two factual errors in the second paragraph? Not great.

On the courgette front, I think I’ve escaped. Ours are all mouth and no trousers (or, at least, they’ve taken up the whole balcony but don’t appear to be producing anything but leaves).

Well, no… I do look forward to discovering first editions of The Deep and eBaying the hell out of them.

It’ll wait until you least expect it, and then BOOM! you’ll be forced to eat courgettes all day long. Though if you do get lucky, courgette cake is my new preferred way of disposal.
