The first book in Asa Wheatley’s Sagas of the Shield Maiden has some new names to me attached to it, so I knew it was worth taking the plunge on it through it’s Kickstarter campaign…..and it was time I had a closer look.
Dave Wimblett’s The Hoards of Surrey was billed as a ‘very British treasure hunt’ but with the likes of The Goonies & Stand By Me passed around as a comparison it HAD to be one I took a look at.
The newest volume of The Legend of La Mariposa from James Lawrence has recently hit the funding trail and we wrestled so I could get an early look 🙂
Billed as a Zombie Horror/Heist Black Comedy set in the Vietnam War it just sounded like the first of the five part Voodoo Chile was worth a look.
I’m constantly jumping on Kickstarter’s based on the glimpse of a cover, the names of the creators I know or just to try something new and Smithers & Wing from Heather Palmer & Kirsty Hunter pretty much slipped into each of those categories – so I knew this was on my “must read” pile already.
Charlot Kristensen’s debut book was released last year through Avery Hill Publishing and it just felt like the kind of book I was going to get something from.
