Brave New World, 2017 edition - 3 months ago
Coming out of a year that was something of a personal triumph and a global disaster it’s hard to know how to summarise. Books were perpetrated, and both Spiderlight and The Tiger and the Wolf have turned up on some best-of lists, which is always nice, as well as more love for Children of Time, Guns of the Dawn and Shadows […]
