Anent Trial of Flowers Powell's | Amazon ]:

Ogre (apparently not the_ogre) talks favorably about the book on his blog.

Take your standard fantasy environment with maybe a hint of steam-punk, add in some elder Gods alla cthulhu and you get the premise (somewhat) behind this novel.


Trent Jamieson likes it a lot, as well.

Trial was such a clever book, with echoes of so many other books – Jay tips his hat to the genre of decadent urban(e) fantasy with absolute assurance.


Madness of Flowers will be out to Night Shade (and second readers) in a day or two.

My review will be on my blog when I've finished the book (I did think of putting up a "half-way stage" review but have decided against it).

Actually, it'll probably be closer to a "critique" than a "review".

I'll let you know when it's there.

I'm hoping to finish it off tonight and I'll probably put a few, hopefully coherent words, up on my lj when I'm done...

But thumbs up so far!

Hi Jay,

Just thought you might like to know that I am now writing my comments up as a review for Vector (the British Science Fiction Association critical magazine, if you haven't come across it) rather than for my LJ.

I'll probably post it up once the issue appears.
