Fascinating page turner - the way all the individual stories gradually link together was very clever. Spookily, for a fantasy, you couldn't help thinking it just MIGHT be real, just MIGHT happen. Gave me the shivers!

Format: Paperback
This book has remained one of my all time favourites! It's very dark and gothic. If you like something a bit different...frightening, yet thought provoking...then this is the one for you. It grabs hold of your heart and twists it a little more with every page!

Format: Paperback
This is essentially a collection of linked short stroies, through which Lovegrove manages to sustain the intense 'hit' of the true short story for an entire novel. It's a story of a world gone wrong, a microcosm; in particular, a world in isolation from the Universe, gradually running down under the strange weight of entropy. Is it allegorical, or just scary? Who knows. Darkly compelling, certainly.

I can't say I enjoyed these stories as they led me into various emotions and also into waking intermittently, scared of creatures I had only read about. It's been about 25 years since a story made that happen! The book is beautifully and powerfully written, well worth a read if you are not the timid type!

Format: Hardcover
James Lovelock's first novel is a terrifying ride on a giant ship "the Hope" -- a microcosm of our own decaying world. Rich in gothic horror and humour this is science fiction at its best.
