Chris Beckett launch party
Last night we corvids were celebrating Chris Beckett's Dark Eden with a launch party at Heffers bookshop in his home town of Cambridge. A wonderful night was had by all and many copies of the book signed by Chris.
The book has been very well recieved in both the press and on the blogosphere with everyone from the Guardian to A.N Wilson singing its praises. This morning we awake to find an incredible Daily Mail review 'Human plight and alien planet are both superbly evoked in a captivating and haunting book'
This adds to
'A classic theme, beautifully told' Sunday Telegraph
'A superior piece of theologically nuanced science fiction... I for one would relish a sequel' Guardian
And a five star review in SFX!
