Our New Book of the Week is Run to the Stars by Michael Scott Rohan, as enthused about last month by Gollancz editor extraordinaire, Marcus Gipps.

Fantasy Masterwork of the Week: Aegypt

There are some people — and I’m one of them — for whom life consists only of passing time between novels by John Crowley Michael Chabon So. How does one follow that?  Maybe the best way is to let the book speak for itself . . .   There is more than one history of […]

New Book of the Week: A Dangerous Energy

One of the joys of working on the SF Gateway is how often we come across ‘new’ books that were, in their earlier print incarnations, published by Gollancz. It’s both a quiet joy to be welcoming one of our own back from out-of-print obscurity and a reminder of the historical importance of Gollancz in the […]

The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever

I didn’t read the second Thomas Covenant trilogy when I was a teenager (see my ramblings about the first books here). I’m not sure why – perhaps I just didn’t have them, and couldn’t find anyone to lend them to me? Anyway, it wasn’t until I started rereading the series in preparation for The Runes […]

The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever

I can’t remember how I first came across Stephen Donaldson’s writing. I have a vague image of my godmother – a wonderful woman who introduced me to SF/F and let me borrow anything I wanted from her shelves, and hang the inappropriate content – passing me something when I was about 11. Mordant’s Need, perhaps? […]

New Book of the Week: An Alien Heat

Our New Book of the Week is the first part of Michael Moorcock’s extraordinary The Dancers at the End of Time sequence: An Alien Heat. Of course, we recommend the entire trilogy, but we’ve only got one New Book of the Week slot so we’ve had to improvise on the Home Page. As we have […]
