If my life were more interesting, I probably wouldn't spend so much time writing about other people!

You can throw water on the fire, or you can fiddle as the world burns down, and Jeff is likely fiddling. His real concern, though, is with the people who don't even realize it's their own flesh that's ablaze. He's doing his best to sound the alarm.(less)

Will You Know My Name? by Jennifer A Dege

Easily the most creative bit of Christian fiction I've read, although its content might have most consumers of that genre recoiling in horror at what they may consider heresy. Weirdly prescient with its inclusion of a worldwide pandemic, the book tac ...more

Future That Never Was by Kin S. Law

I found this book to be a mixture of steampunk and pulp fiction, with all the fun fantasy science of a fairly complex steampunk universe but the over-the-top sensibilities of a pulp novel with its fleshy heroines and pirate heroes. The author overcom ...more
Idle Hands by Cassondra Windwalker
"Perdie has three children and an abusive husband. To protect her family, she decides to leave her husband and find safe harbour for her and the children.
'Ella' is the Devil, and the narrator, it works surprisingly well in this story.

Idle Hands by Cassondra Windwalker
"I didn’t quite ‘get’ this book. The cover and title had led me to expect a comedy but there was nothing funny about this tale of domestic abuse, interspersed with the ‘sinister’ ramblings of the devil, Ella.
The domestic violence storyline is uncomfo" Read more of this review »

I'm an avid fan of thrillers but usually eschew present-tense writing as it feels distant to me. Kelly's exquisite writing not only made me forget the tense, she made me forget I was reading at all. I'd reserved her book for my bedtime reading, which ...more

Bang to Begin is best described as a book for writers, not readers. The language is lovely and tightly controlled, perfectly executed. Natural distance between the many narrators and the reader is first introduced by the use of present tense and furt ...more

“Love seeks out that desperate, lonely, frightened place inside each of us and coaxes it out into the daylight, so that it can eviscerate it in the burning heat of the sun.”
Cassondra Windwalker

“All you had to do was line up events as though they had happened in linear fashion and let the crowds draw what they thought was their own conclusion.”
Cassondra Windwalker, Bury The Lead

“It was her fault she'd stayed so long that they'd grown inured to terror the only way they knew how: by sympathising with the aggressor”
Cassondra Windwalker, Idle Hands

“Love seeks out that desperate, lonely, frightened place inside each of us and coaxes it out into the daylight, so that it can eviscerate it in the burning heat of the sun.”
Cassondra Windwalker

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
Roald Dahl

“If we lived for ever, what you say would be true. But we have to die, we have to leave life presently. Injustice and greed would be the real thing if we lived for ever. As it is, we must hold to other things, because Death is coming. I love death - not morbidly, but because He explains. He shows me the emptiness of Money. Death and Money are the eternal foes. Not Death and Life. . . . Death destroys a man: the idea of Death saves him. Behind the coffins and the skeletons that stay the vulgar mind lies something so immense that all that is great in us responds to it. Men of the world may recoil from the charnel-house that they will one day enter, but Love knows better. Death is his foe, but his peer, and in their age-long struggle the thews of Love have been strengthened, and his vision cleared, until there is no one who can stand against him.”
E.M. Forster, Howards End

“Fiction is art and art is the triumph over chaos… to celebrate a world that lies spread out around us like a bewildering and stupendous dream.”
John Cheever
