Eversion approaches

 Eversion will be out in a couple of weeks in the UK, and I've already seen my author copies. It looks very nice, with a distinctly different design to my other titles.

Some early reviews have begun to appear. Writing in the Daily Mail, Jamie Buxton called it "gripping, exciting and clever, as well as a deeply moving story about truth, sacrifice and how to be human."

In New Scientist, Sally Adee wrote: "it isn't every day you get to experience a perfect collision of the Romantic macabre of Edgar Allan Poe and HP Lovecraft with The Usual Suspects and 2001: A Space Odyssey."

Finally, writing in The Guardian, Lisa Tuttle called it a "wonderfully entertaining puzzle wrapped inside an adventure story, which turns out to be science fictional after all."


  1. Looking forward to it Alastair. Ordered from Amazon UK as the hardcover won't be available in the US. I don't get Amazon US doing things that way, but as long as I can order from the UK, that works for me.

  2. Fantastic, can't wait. Preordered it on Amazon, where the blurb notes that "Doctor Silas Coade joins his fellow exploders..." I _think_ that's a typo, but part of me badly wants it not to be :D

    Eagerly waiting for this to arrive. I love the hardcover art of the UK version. A while back I think you had mentioned that you will be putting out a new novella this year; is this still in the works ? Thanks

    1. I'm not sure what I said, it may have been that I was working on a novella, but that's on hold for the time being.

  4. I should have two copies (one for me, one for my father) waiting for me in Cardiff when I fly in next weekend.

  5. I doubt people will have an aversion to Eversion. 😁
