First review for “The Stars Askew”

The first review for Rjurik Davidson’s “The Stars Askew” has appeared in the wild, as Matt Hlinak of Pop Mythology unpacks the second novel in the Caeli-Amur Series

Matt says:

I have been waiting with anticipation for the follow-up to Rjurik Davidson’s strikingly original debut, Unwrapped Sky (2014), and The Stars Askew does not disappoint. The “young master of the New Weird” fleshes out his wonderfully bizarre world, a world that blends familiar elements of history and mythology in unique ways.

Review of The Streetking on Black Gate

A wonderful review of Peter Hickman’s “The Streetking” has gone up at Black Gate magazine:

There was only one heroic fantasy story in the November issues of Beneath Ceaseless Skies#160‘s “The Streetking” by Peter Hickman. It’s a marvelous tale of a street criminal and the young noble girl who comes to sell him stolen jewelery. Over time she comes down to the streets herself. With her “mineshaft mind”, they become a formidable pair. So much so that they run afoul of the lord of the underworld, the Streetking.

The highlight of the story is the street argot Hickman’s created for his narrator’s voice. It’s got the right amount of slang and original syntax to sound believable.
