Update and News

Apologies for the lack of blog activity of late. Just started my new job and sorting out a mountain of paperwork and debt from the house move has left me with little time to read. However, reviews of Greg Bear's Blood Music and Daniel Abraham's The Long Price: Shadow and Betrayal should be up in the next few days.

I'm also hoping to finally get those SF&F computer game reviews underway, but I've said this before and not been able to follow up on it. Those looking for some good spec fic on their PC should check out the imminently-released The Witcher (based on Andrzej Sapkowski's novels) and the opposition-crushing Crysis (from the makers of the classic Far Cry).

In other news, Battlestar Galactica's fourth season has been confirmed for April 2008 in the USA (and shortly afterwards on Sky One in the UK). Razor will still air as planned at the end of November though.

R. Scott Bakker's much-awaited The Great Ordeal has been pushed back to January 2009, which is most disappointing news, as this was formerly my most-awaited book of the year (following A Dance with Dragons, obviously).

JV Jones' A Sword From Red Ice was finally published in both the UK and USA this week. I'm hoping to get a copy for review in the near future.
