HANG WIRE and THE BURNING DARK web round-up

Lots of stuff has popped up online recently, so here’s a quick little rundown. But before we get into the links, the joint Angry Robot Books/Titan Books launch of Hang Wire and The Burning Dark now has a Facebook event page. You don’t need tickets, and you don’t even need to register on the Facebook page, but it does give us a indication of potential numbers. Remember, there will be giveaways, and something fancy to drink! This is also your chance to get The Burning Dark three weeks before it goes on general sale.

Reviews of Hang Wire are starting to come in:

Booklist – as previously mentioned – gave the book a starred review, saying…

There’s a lot going in this genre-bender…  Christopher fulfils our expectations and more.  Days after finishing the book, you’ll still have a grin on your face.

The March 2014 issue of SFX Magazine features a review, and they say…

The sheer volume of ideas is dizzying… an enjoyably fast-paced read.

Geek Syndicate say that Hang Wire is…

A very good piece of storytelling. A damn fine read.

Every Read Thing says…

It’s a fun novel with a hell of an interesting cast.

Kafka’s Cage says…

To put it simply, this is one of the best sci-fi novels in years. It’s a worthwhile experience and one that beats any number of Hollywood Blockbusters for pure originality and panache. A fantastic read.

Just a Guy That Likes To Read says…

There’s only so much praise you can heap on a book, and I’m going to lay it on thick here. Hang Wire is a damn cool book. It’s the perfect example of deep and well thought-out characterisation, diversification, multi dimensional plotting, and clever (and at times poetic) writing. Each chapter could easily read as a self contained short story yet it’s the intrinsically well linked and overlapping plot that binds these gems into a greater beast that dares the reader to tame it – be warned, you can’t… and you’ll love Adam Christopher for it.

Bibliophile says…

It’s an absorbing read. Definitely an enjoyable one, and worth picking up when it comes out.
