Review:

This is Alastair Reynold's third book with us and the interest in Al has definitely increased. He is definitely becoming a name and authority on the SF circle and will soon pose a major threat to Peter F Hamilton and Iain Banks. Interviews: An extensive interview with THE ZONE website. OTTAKAR'S have always been really supportive of Al and this year they are featuring an interview with him on their website. The WATERSTONE'S genre magazine ENIGMA again featured an interview with Al. Short interview with a review in DREAMWATCH. An interview is due to run in the September issue of STARBURST, it will be between Stephen Baxter and Al. SIGNINGS/EVENTSSignings and events were organised for publication with with Forbidden Planet, Andromeda, Waterstone's Deansgate andHammicks Redhill. Stock signings in key London bookshops.
