Matters up for review (update)

8 10 2017

It’s been two months or so since I gave a round-up of the reviews for my SF/crime novella Matters Arising from the Identification of the Body (Peggy Bright Books, 2017), and there are a few new ones to highlight. As is standard practice, I’ll provide a snippet from each, while linking to the full reviews on their respective original sites.


Cindy Bohn of the Speedy Reader site says ‘I really enjoyed this book. I liked the mystery aspect, I liked the characters, and I really enjoyed the setting. It’s a world enough like our own that I could identify with what was going on, but enough different that it was completely fresh. I recommend this one and I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.The full review is here.

Elizabeth Fitzgerald of the Earl Grey Editing site says ‘Another thing I was pleased to see was how diverse the cast was. It’s something I’m not used to seeing in hard sci-fi… A solid read … I’d definitely recommend it to lovers of hard sci-fi.Here’s the full review.

Suzie Eisfelder of Suz’s Space says ‘It has good writing, a plot that makes sense and it’s written by an Australian author! What more do you want? … Anyway, enough nonsense. Yes, I thoroughly recommend it.Here’s the full review.

Lee Murray says ‘It hooks me from the get-go … Well written and original, with characters who are both unique and recognisable, this is a satisfying read. Well worth the quick detour.The full review is here.

(You may note that there’s a mention, in the Speedy Reader review, of ‘the next book in the series’. No, it hasn’t slipped my mind. I’m working on it. And yes, it should still be out next year.)
