I recently made a guest appearance on the podcast Fabulous Fleapit of Franchises. I join host Carl Denham (also known as @LLCoolMage) to talk all things science fiction, in a space port that is doing a good job of sounding like a busy pub! “Author of The Lazarus War Series Jamie Sawyer joins the fleapit…

This weekend marked a major event in the SFF calendar: the Nine Worlds Convention! Actually, the SFF-fest that was this weekend started early.

Book review: ROBOTEER by Alex Lamb

ROOTER cover section

  Verdict: Thoroughly enjoyable hard SF ROBOTEER’s backdrop is a war between two human factions: the Earthers and the Galateans. The Earthers are presented as religious fanatics, driven to war with the Galateans as a result of the latter’s practice of human modification (labelling them “genetic fascists” and “capitalists”). Will Monet is a Galatean “roboteer”…

TV review: STRANGER THINGS (Netflix)

STRANGER THINGS

  Verdict: Amazing. Go watch it! Anyone who follows me on Twitter (and if you don’t, you really should) will know that this week I have been mostly watching STRANGER THINGS. You’ll also know that I think STRANGER THINGS is amazing. The set up to THINGS is comfortingly familiar. Set in 1983, small-town America, the…

LAZARUS WAR: ORIGINS on the shelf

Mission accomplished. Objective secured. Target neutralised. That’s right, people: I’ve just received an advance paperback copy of THE LAZARUS WAR: ORIGINS…   I’m very pleased with the cover. Orbit went for a really bright green, which is very appropriate for the story. While the previous two books look great, ORIGINS really pops. Here’s a close…
