Thank you for the link. I read the excerpt from Wither and loved it; just based on the first 2 lines and I would have decided to get the book when published even if I had not made my mind earlier:

Also I think that the excerpt from Dark Space is great and should encourage people to get the book (were I to have read it earlier, again I would have ordered the book immediately).
I remember I saw a very good review in Hub, an online magazine I found out about recently, though I think I had already ordered the book from BD by then.
I also decided to start Nylon Angel and since Crash Deluxe is not available yet here in the US, I will use BD again to get the UK edition, with Code Noir from a bookstore around (all the 3 Borders around here carry it according to their site).

Well, I hope you enjoy them. Thanks.
Please bear in mind - the Parrish series is fun (most of the time) with dark undertones - whereas the Sentients series, though it has lighter moments, is deadly serious.
The Hub review is being re-published in much greater depth at the new Scalpel Magazine according to Paul Raven the reviewer. Should be out any moment - I'm looking forward to reading it.

I AM too a mod!
Another great review in AurealisXpress.
I grabbed a copy at the Dark Space launch. Looking forward to reading it. Great to see you again, Marianne.

great to see you again also.
Congratulations on all the sales you've been making especially being in the new issue of Orb.
Good luck with things for the rest of this year. Keep me posted.

This is a particularly in depth review of Dark Space. I don't suggest you read it if you haven't read the book. But it is a wonderfully astute analysis.
