Format: Mass Market Paperback
Simon Bucher-Jones has really outdone himself this time. After the appalling ‘Death of Art’ a year earlier, I thought his writing couldn’t actually get anymore smug and puffed-up; but lines such as: ‘A thundering headache was gathering behind her eyes, but oddly it did not seem to matter’ – just made me want to cringe. I suppose this kind of thing is inevitable with such fan-boy fiction; however Christopher Bulis’ Tempest (the next in the series) is outstanding in comparison, and shows that there really is no need for such gratuitously pompous prose. Unfortunately, as a completist, I am duty-bound to read this drivel – however as someone once said: ‘things…can only get better…’

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not Bucher-Jones' best 26 Feb. 2000
By Raistlin Wakefield - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The basic idea of Ghost Devices is brilliant, but it falters somewhat in the execution (something common to many of the post-Doctorectomy NAs). It's certainly not a bad book, but it's not the author's best; the MacGuffin in "The Death of Art" was just as good and the plotting was much smoother.

4.0 out of 5 stars Douglas Adams meets Iain Banks' "the Culture" 1 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoy the style of both authors, and found that Simon Bucher-Jones did well in providing a story with both humorous and thought-provoking societal and science elements.
