ROSEWATER: A Novel

Publishers Weekly:

[A] compellingly strange yet accessible setting, with an underlying mystery to drive the fast-paced narrative.

Reviews and Stuff

Mike Tyson said everyone has a plan till they’re punched in the face. Or something similar. Been a while since I had anything to say, mostly because life punched me in the face. No tragedy or drama or anything, just regular life stuff that requires time and effort.

Now then.

Locus Online reviews AfroSFV2 in which my novella ‘The Last Pantheon’ co-written with Nick Wood, gets favourable mention.

“It’s overall an entertaining read with occasional political overtones, not a screed, but at its heart a tragedy of two persons who once called each other brothers.”

My novel MAKING WOLF (which you’ve bought, right?) continues to get favourable reviews.

Here’s one from Val’s Random Comments.

“Thompson has his reasons to tell the story the way he does. He wants the book to be more than a simple fast-paced thriller and succeeds gloriously. It’s a book that hides a lot of food for thought under the surface. I’ve been spoiled with a great many good books this year. Making Wolf is another book I can wholeheartedly recommend.”

Full review here.

Some news: World Fantasy Convention

So…my story ‘SLIP ROAD’ will be part of the anthology “Unconventional Fantasy, A Celebration of Forty Years of the World Fantasy Convention.”

I’m pleased.

Meanwhile, stuck in rewrites, but I will be in and out of this place.

Tip your waitresses!
