What a week.
Here’s a collection of links to reviews, articles and so on relating to Skyward Inn (If you haven’t read it yet and want to avoid spoilers, I’d recommend not clicking on the reviews just yet, just to be on the safe side):
Noah Berlatsky’s review in the LA Times: In the beautiful gross-out sci-fi novel ‘Skyward Inn,’ we are all aliens.
Wah. It’s the SF Book of the Month in The Times, reviewed by Simon Ings.
Lisa Tuttle, writing for The Guardian, calls it ‘an instant classic of the genre’ (insert incredulous noise of delight here).
A genre round up in the Financial Times features Skyward Inn as ‘wonderfully surreal’.
Fantasy Hive featured a great review written by Jonathan Thornton.
The British Fantasy Society review, written by Ian Green, can be found here.
Does Skyward Inn pass the page 69 test? Find out.
I chatted to Gareth Jelley of Intermultiversal Space about the book and writing and lots of other things. Thanks Gareth.
And I wrote a guest piece at SciFiNow about first contact books and films that I love, including Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Roadside Picnic, and Mars Attacks!
Next Monday I’ll be in conversation with MR Carey and Brian Nisbet about Skyward Inn and The Fall of Koli (a great end to a trilogy I’ve loved, so I’m excited to get to talk about it!). There are still a few tickets left for this online event, I think, so hope to see you, or at least sense your electronic presence, there.
