Those rare occasions when a Thursday turns out pretty good, plus some new HANG WIRE reviews

Oops, missed a blog post yesterday! To be honest, I was flat out busy, so it would have been a picture post of something random in my office anyway. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

Anyway, today was a good day. Lots of work done. Got two bits of amazing news which I can’t tell you about. Then unexpectedly got tickets to see my favourite band, The Cure, at the Royal Albert Hall next month (general sale is tomorrow, but I heard word of a pre-sale this morning and was online at just the right time), and then, to top it off, Lego announced they are doing a Ghostbusters set as part of their CUUSOO series (fan-created sets that are then voted on for appraisal and possible production by Lego).

So, all in all, it’s been a pretty amazing day.

Meanwhile, some more Hang Wire links in action:

Over at Mary Robinette Kowal’s My Favorite Bit, I give the lowdown on the book’s main villain, Joel Duvall.

The Book Plank review the book and says:

Hang Wire is a awesome read (and that’s understating it by far). From the first pages I was hooked.

There’s also a new interview with me up on that site.

At My Shelf Confessions, Tabitha says that Hang Wire is:

Fricka fracking blowing my mind good!

…which is my favourite review quote ever!

Megan at All Things Urban Fantasy says:

If Tim Powers wrote The Night Circus, the resulting novel would probably look a lot like Adam Christopher’s Hang Wire.

My Bookish Ways says:

Hang Wire is just pure fun. Yes, there are some dark doings here (something huge is awakening underground and gods are running around wearing human facades, and of course, murder), however, Adam Christopher manages to pull off the right amount of creepy (and some great action scenes) without ever getting toodark. Fans of quirky urban fantasy will devour this one.

And Popcorn Reads says:

Adam Christopher has brought his unique vision to his novel and I loved it. Hang Wire is pure murder mystery married to a dark, sinister urban fantasy, with both bordering on and possibly crossing over into horror in places. I get chills now just thinking about it.

See you tomorrow!

    Those are indeed some fabulous review quotes! LEGOS!!!! I wish they wouldn’t have done away with the original design they had for the Millennium Falcon I would have built that sucker and hung it from my ceiling!

    AHEM! It’s Lego, singular, never “Legos”!

    And do you mean the big collector’s set Millennium Falcon? I would love one of those – but they go second-hand now for £5,000.

    Ok ok Lego! Would you believe years ago my husband bought me that original set!? while we were just dating – it was like $500 at the time and I made him return it to the store because I felt like he’d spent too much money on me. I’ve always regretted it to this day *weeps and dwells in darkness*
