Life in Hyperion by John Maxwell

The first real novel to come down the hopefully long and winding John Maxwell pipeline. The book’s long narrative takes as back to the year 2009, where things were different. Things are certainly different for two people working at Hyperion, Michigan’s local radio station WHYP, Conrad Harris and his friend Cyrus McLean ‘Cy’ Scott. As the story begins, Conrad is . . .

A Few Good Conversations (Well, At Least 10) by Hans Taylor

Alcohol, empathy, and other poisons.

Most years, I think, are skippable. They suffer from this indescribable mundanity, this relentlessly oscillating day in day out. Those years you could summarise in a sentence or two. To say that 2014 was the best year of my life would be unfair to years 1997 through to 2013, and all the years that followed. But it was certainly the . . .

STONE BURNERS

Editor’s First Impression

By Palladian, editor, author of Super

Jan 31, 2015: I found Stone Burners to be engaging quickly on, beginning with a hero that appears to have had her memories largely erased and struggling to fill in the knowledge of her world from there. The main character, Olivia, is interesting and engaging, and both her adventures and the people she meets as the story goes on serve to pull the reader in, I found. There also seems to be a good balance of story exposition and action. It’s clear to me that the author spent a lot of time thinking [more . . .]

THE ALARNA AFFAIR

Young Adventure

By G.S. Williams, author of The Surprising Life and Death of Diggory Franklin

Sep 20, 2011: "The Alarna Affair" is part of the Blackfeather series, and if the rest of the series is anything like the first, it should be a reliably enjoyable experience. It’s a fantasy epic set in a world like our own Victorian Era, with trains and steam-power, but also with magic and intrigue.

Jon Gardner, 9, and his brother Tam, 13, are travelling from their home to visit a famed archaelologist, Professor Sheridan. Jon, it seems, is a precocious young genius, while Tam [more . . .]
