Steve Dean was born and still lives in the city of Nottingham in the UK. He began to read at a very early age and soon became an avid consumer of genre fiction. Over the years, he tried several jobs before ending up in IT support. During this time, Steve began writing his own fiction, eventually becoming a full-time freelancer. In the last twenty-five years, Steve has created a wide range of works, including science fiction and fantasy novels, short stories, and material for a variety of tabletop and video games.

Another excellent read from the ever-inventive Mr Stross. The characters are great, the plot is original and moves along at a good pace, and overall it's a very enjoyable page-turner.

This is book one of two, although you can read them separately and

This review covers the full Palladium Wars trilogy: Aftershocks, Ballistic and Citadel.

I'm reviewing all the books together because there's really only one novel here.

I bought this book because it was on offer and because The Martian was ok. The plot follows a team of people as they try to find out why the Sun is dimming an event that will lead to the extinction of all life on Earth. It's obvious the author has do ...more

This isn't one of Terry's best, but it's still readable and still has the same hallmarks he's known for.

The only real criticism I have is in regard to the format. On my Kindle, all the footnotes are gathered together at the end, so it's a pain to rea

To recap; The Sea Wolves, sort of Viking invaders, have met their match and are forced to flee before the forces of the Sunken God, who is now fully awake and looking for breakfast. Some of the sea wolf clans have been taken in by the propaganda (som ...more

The main character, Ig, (yes, that’s his name) is an Elemental. Not one made of water or fire or mayo like in D&D, but a human who can control the elements of rock and fire. Despite this power, he is bound by even more powerful magic to Magnate Sorre ...more

There are a lot of words in this book and a limited amount of plot. All the characters talk far too much and don’t say a lot. The writing is very imprecise. As an example; near the beginning of the book is a short scene in which one man kneels down i ...more
