Format: Paperback
It was a drink with that Brax feller (who lives near me and is officially one of the nicest people on the internet) that reminded me to get around to buying this. We were having the usual conversation about Who novel authors, and Daniel O'Mahony's name came up as one of those who (like Dave Stone and Paul Magrs) seems almost to be in a category of his own in terms of style. There's certain groups of writers who appear to share common interests and literary themes - for example, Lawrence Miles and Simon-Bucher Jones seem related in some way (at least to me), as do er... Christopher Bulis and Paul Leonard. That said, beyond the Who enclave, his writing reminds me a little of Neil Gaiman (an influence I know), Ursula LeGuin, and maybe Octavia Butler - it has the same rich sense of imagery conveyed by text which could easily stand as poetry in its own right - not one prosaic sentence, each one seemingly the result of serious fine tuning, and yet never laboured or so overworked as to become indigestible. That said, his prose does expect a certain degree of commitment from the reader, not something conducive to skimming, but that can hardly be a bad thing.

Anyway, Force Majeure (which curiously enough opens with something unusual falling from a tree, as with Newtons Sleep) is a sort of magic realist (ish) novel set in an Andean city which, although packed with the sort of weirdness you might expect from LeGuin or Gaiman (although frankly he does it a lot better than Gaiman so far as I'm concerned), is nevertheless contemporary and thus pleasantly free of Tolkeinisms.
