More About the Author

Graeme K Talboys was born in Hammersmith. He still blames his parents.

Since then, he has been coming to terms with the fact that he had his head taken apart in the '60s, whereafter the bits were exposed to loud music from various sources, strange movies, stranger writings, and some downright weird people. It eventually got put back together, but there were bits left over and they never did find the budgie.

In between being a space cadet and teaching in schools and museums, he has written nine works of non-fiction, eight of which have been published (on museum education, drama, and matters spiritual). He has also written more than a dozen novels. The first (written when he was seventeen) was lost on a train. The next two (written in his early twenties) he wishes had been. He has also completed three spy novels, a science fiction novel, a children's novel, a number of fantasy novels, and several 'literary' works including a collection of short stories. Not all of these are currently in print, but a goodly and growing number are.

He is currently working on something new (which will be allowed nowhere near a train).



Product Description

Review

A first class adventure which moves with a pace and panache rarely seen these days. If you like good future fantasy youll love this. Reminiscent of M. J. Harrison or China Miéville at their fascinating best. I enjoyed Stealing Into Winter a lot. --Michael Moorcock

Brilliant storytelling with lots of action - the story starts with an explosion and the pace never drops. I quickly started to care about the main character, Jeniche - and read on late into the night because I wanted to know what was going to happen to her. Graeme has created an interesting character with a past and a future I want to know more about - and an interesting world that also has its mysteries.

I'm really looking forward to the next in the series -the final image in this book is still lingering in my mind.

Full disclosure - I know Graeme though OU courses, and I am happy to wholeheartedly recommend this book. I've loved fantasy for a long time and this is an excellent addition to the genre.

If you are looking for a new fantasy series to transport you to another place, Stealing into Winter is a great read. The language Talboys uses brings the vivid scenery and characters to life and the plot moves along at a steady pace, keeping you reading just one more chapter before you put the book down... and then another... There is plenty of scope for more adventures for Jeniche. The ending certainly implies this and I hope it isn't too long before the next one appears.

Format: Paperback
Jeniche is a complex and central character in this novel. With her diverse companions, she leads you into a difficult world, where keeping alive and finding food, clothing and shelter are daily priorities. Avoiding the occupying soldiers is a continuing life-threatening struggle. While her friends become important, those characters she mistrusts, you begin to keep at arm's length.
The world of Jeniche is complex and sometimes bewildering. As you travel the countries of the plot, there are hidden puzzles which the imagination struggles to solve. Some episodes provide tantalising glimpses of other plots to follow, encountering characters, places and time frames the reader hopes to eventually revisit.
Stealing into Winter is a really good read, one of those books that you are sorry to finish. I am already looking forward to the sequel.

This is a great read, just what you'd expect from a master storyteller like Graeme Talboys. (I declare an interest - I've had the privilege of studying alongside him and benefiting from his expertise.) Fascinating characters in a strange but convincing landscape, questions raised and definitely not all answered - next in the series asap, please!
