Howdy!


It’s great news for fans of Code Breakers—the fourth and final novel is now out. To be honest, it’s been out for a little while already, but I’ve been suffering from Manflu and therefore have been a little slack in sending out the news.


Delta is the final novel for this particular story line. This is not to say Code Breakers is completely finished, but it’s resolved for now. Perhaps in the...

Amazing book. Full of inventiveness, brilliant science, humour, and optimism. A true science fiction classic. I can't believe this didn't scoop all the SF awards.

I'd give it 3.5 if I had half-stars available. Very enjoyable read, not quite as entertaining (for me) as the first one, but not far off. Well written, funny, and a nice balance between plot and character. It's a fast, short-ish read which I apprecia...more

I didn't enjoy this as much as Easy Go, but for a dime novel adventure it was fun enough. These Crichton/Lange books are kind if guilty pleasures. They're not high on literary skill, but neither are they hideous to read. They're just fast paced, clic...more

If you go into this book with the mindset of it being a dime novel adventure tale then you won't be disappointed. It's an entirely different beast to Crichton's technothrillers but I'm glad of that. This is pure, old-school adventure. It rattles alon...more

Great book, clever, witty and an interesting look at contemporary culture. Didn't quite reach the heights of Pattern Recognition, the first in the trilogy, but, for me, was a marked improvement on Spook Country. My only criticism was that I felt the...more
