Steampunk Thursday: Pax Britannia Reviews

A couple more reviews for you today, found on the Internet...

Time's Arrow

Originally published as part of the three-part literary experiment where readers themselves were asked to decide where the plot will go next, Time's Arrow collects all the instalments in one handy package. Now, reading it all together, I can't help but wonder how amazing is the fact that the story works at all, let alone so well. It serves as the best testament you will ever need to the skill of Jonathan Green as a writer. [Read the whole review here.]

The Ulysses Quicksilver Omnibus

Green writes action like no one else I have ever read. He sustains the longest action sequences without losing momentum, without ceasing to make sense, or it in any way becoming dull. This impressed me. There are moments of total poetry in his writing, and some grim humour. Here is an author who knows how to relish the moment when an unspeakable thing tears a victim into little pieces. Oh yes, did I mention the monsters? There are monsters. People die.
