Product description


A more original sort of fantasy. (Roz Kaveney TIME OUT)

For my money Swainston is one of the best British authors writing in any genre. She has a facility with language and a genius for plot and character which Booker prize winners could, and should, be envious of. The Hobbs, Brookses and Feists of this world may well outsell it, but this will be the outstanding fantasy book of the year by a country mile (Publishing News)

An uncompromisingly classy act. (THE GUARDIAN)

¿NO PRESENT LIKE TIME is a welcome return to the world Swainston put on paper so delectably first time round. Whereas THE YEAR OF OUR WAR centred on ¿ you guessed it ¿ a war, NO PRESENT LIKE TIME has more of a political edge, embossed with flawless, deep characterization. (This is) an extremely unusual, familiar yet at the same time extraordinarily original novel. There¿s joy to discover on every page, even if that page does involve some poor fool getting his read ripped off¿ (Jayne Dearsley SFX)

"Once again, Steph Swainston has created a remarkable work of fantasy, both refreshing and enjoyable. It is great to see such a revitalisation of the genre with brilliant new authors like her leading the way." (OUTLAND) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
