To be or not to be? On the Shakespeare and Company events list?

Dropped in to The Shakespeare and Company bookshop yesterday, and enquired about organising a reading / signing event for my novel. They are a Parisian institution, located just across the Seine from Notre Dame. Great place to browse for English books, both new and second hand. Check them out if you are in Paris and encourage them to accept my event request ☺.

Review of "I, Human" by John Nelson

"I, Human"  is written in a beautiful polished style. It is a craftfully created blend of science-fiction, dystopia, psycho-spiritual, and spy-story genres. Drawing on elements of classics like 1984, A Brave New World, or Neuromancer, it leads the reader into an imagined future where much of humanity have had genetically-created neural implants inserted into their brains. This enhances their analytic intelligence, while reducing emotions and feelings. The 'bornies' - those without such neutral implants - are more in touch with their feelings and energies; some have spiritual healing powers and are perceived as a threat by government powers.  I recommend it, as it is an engrossing, intelligent, thought-provoking read.

Review of "Escape from the Past: The Duke’s Wrath" by Annette Oppenlander

Annette  Oppenlander has written an entertaining, swashbuckling adventure aimed at young adults, but which older people with an interest in the Middle Ages should also enjoy. It follows teenager Max Anderson as he travels back in time, via a computer game, to 15th century Germany. Hopefully this novel will encourage 'gamers' like the hero of the story to quit their game consoles for a while and read some books.
