Pisces of Fate by Paul Mannering
“Ascott scrambled for his dive knife, he and waved the four- inch blade between himself and the octopus. The floating sack of tentacles hesitated and then all eight of its arms snapped forward. Curled in the tip of each was a variety of sharpened implements, from swords and dive knives to a fishing spear. The large unblinking eyes seemed to be saying, Your move.”

I now understand what a workmate of mine means when he said, "I envy you reading Wool, for the first time. I wish I could experience that again."

Hugh Howey has the poetry of Clive Barker, and the vision of Cormac McCarthy.

DREG brings some tantalising elements to the serial killer genre. There are elements of MR MERCEDES, and DR SLEEP in there (coincide

“You seriously believe that someone who married a fruit bat could have been the architect of a global conspiracy that has stood unchallenged for over one hundred years?’ ‘Absolutely,’ Drakeforth nodded.”
