New Review


I wrote the last post late last night, and first thing this morning a whole lot of emails dropped into my box telling me I had been reviewed by aurealisXpress (the monthly ebulletin for subscribers of Aurealis magazine). Thanks, guys.

And the review is lovely.

Says Stuart Mayne, co-editor of Aurealis:
The final book in Glenda Larke's second fantasy series is a fitting end to a superb creator of new worlds. Once again Glenda Larke has shown the fantasy fan that she is a writer of subtlety and depth.

And he ends the review thus:
The Mirage Makers has been a captivating read. Glenda Larke's plotting is tight and complex; she loves to keep her readers guessing. Perfectly constructed to keep the reader turning the pages. I loved this series.

Hmm. Maybe "creator" in that first quote should read "creation"? :-)

Heh. Yes, I certainly hope it is not an end to the creator!

Looks to me as though a phrase (or line maybe) was cut out between 'end to a' and 'superb' to reduce wordcount or column space, and someone didn't proofread the edited version carefully enough. Tsk tsk.

Fabulous, and well deserved!!!!

I, on the other hand, just got reviewed by PW -- and was called a man.

*sniff*

Glenda Larke said...

Never mind, Karen, at least you have a publisher who procures a PW review for you.

Very true. There is always an upside ... but I can't help wondering when Karen turned into a man's name! *ggg*

'Karen' could be a pseudonym for a male author - a logical marketing move, as a lot of the best Fantasy writers are women.

Then again, maybe Kevin becomes 'Karen' when he slips on that little blue dress (but only in the privacy of his own home, natch). ;oP
