Update: Normal Service Will Be Resumed


I SAID I’D BE BACK.

Oh you of little faith! I have returned, ready and eager to resume posting again.

First of all, I’d like to apologise for the longer than intended hiatus. I had planned on being back several weeks a go, but circumstances did not allow. While I have not been able to deal with all my personal issues, the time away has helped me regain my enthusiasm for reading, writing and working on this blog.

You can expect regular updates to resume this week; I might even have a new book review posted later today. So thank you for your patience, hopefully extended breaks will be a thing of the past.

 

With Regards,
Ian

Update: Time For A Brief Intermission


GOING ABSENT WITHOUT LEAVE.

You might notice the complete lack of new posts in the coming weeks. But it will only be a temporary respite; I will be back soon.

 
Graphic

Since the back-end of February, and throughout most of this month, real life matters have been getting on top of me. It has been to the extent where not only have I had so little time to post updates for the blog, but it has also been sapping my motivation to read and write, altogether. Consequently, I have decided that I need a break to deal with my personal issues, and to recharge my batteries. So, with immediate effect Another World will be on hiatus for the next four to six weeks, meaning there will be no new posts during April.

But do not fret. This is just a temporary measure; I fully intend to resume work on the blog in May. But until then, happy reading.

 

With Regards,
Ian

Update: Upcoming Book Reviews For September

Newsworthy

I have been sitting on a number of reviews, which for one reason or another, I have not had the time to post this month. But don’t fret, with a new month almost upon us, here are some of the titles you can expect to see reviewed during September.

 

Book Cover Book Cover Book Cover Book Cover

  • Children’s classic, The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis in which the Pevensie siblings enter the magical land of Narnia for the first time.
  • Richard K. Morgan’s cult cyberpunk début novel, Altered Carbon; a noir murder mystery in a future where death has been made obsolete with the advent of technology that can transfer human consciousness into brand new bodies.
  • The genre bending Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff that seamlessly blends dystopia and steampunk with a Japanese aesthetic.
  • Maurice Broaddus’ unique urban fantasy re-telling of the Arthurian Legend, set in a contemporary inner city African-American neighbourhood, King Maker. A novel which can best be described as King Arthur meets The Wire.
  • The Minority Report, a short story from the late great Philip K. Dick.
  • Book Cover Book Cover Book Cover Book Cover

  • Also there’s Full Moon Rising by Australian author Keri Arthur; the first outing for the half-werewolf, half-vampire, urban fantasy heroine, Riley Jensen.
  • Trudi Canavan returns to the land of Kyralia with The Ambassador’s Mission, the first book of The Traitor Spy trilogy.
  • Another short-story from Philip K. Dick, this time, We Can Remember It For You Wholesale.
  • More shenanigans with Rachel Morgan in book two of the amazing Hollows series, The Good, The Bad, And The Undead, by Kim Harrison.
  • Also, my favourite instalment of The Chronicles Of Narnia, The Horse And His Boy.

    Update: Normal Service Will Be Resumed

    Newsworthy

     

    Hello fellow bookworms! Some of you may be wondering why this blog hasn’t been updated for a while. Well, somehow it had escaped my notice that it has been over a month since my last post; I didn’t realise it was quite that long. Why it has been so long isn’t really important, but let’s just say that real life concerns have a habit of encroaching upon my time.

    Anyway, normal service will now be resumed. I won’t allow the blog to go so long without any updates, so I’ll be posting regularly once more; starting with another book review which will be posted shortly.

    Thanks for reading.
