Seeds Of Earth Review: Scotland on Sunday

For those not in the know, Scotland On Sunday is a large, broadsheet-style Sunday newspaper published for readers and buyers mostly in Scotland; its a bit like the Observer but without the bulk. So, the literary editor hisself, Stuart Kelly, has reviewed both my own book and another called Journey Into Space by Toby Litt, a chap who has been mainly a writer of mainstream/literary/contemporary novels (but who claimed in a recent interview that he was a long-time SF fan).

So, go forth my fellow travellers of the mind-galaxies, and read Mr Kelly’s appreciative appraisal, and always remember that to be thought mostly harmless confers something of a tactical advantage.

    I’ve just read Journey Into Space and you can tell that it’s an effort by a literary writer rather than a genre one. It had the potential to be so good, but just used the situation to examine what could happen rather than tell a story. At the end of the day a story is what I read for, and Seeds of Earth gives that in bucket loads!

    Oh, and my shiny new copy arrived today. Looking very, very nice!
