May’s Readers’ Choice Winner

It’s that time of the month again, gentlebeings: time to trawl the analytics and see exactly whose favourite book prompted the most people to click through and see what all the fuss was about.

So, without further ado, we are delighted to announce the results for May and, believe it or not, it’s another tie. And – to further stretch incredulity – it’s another tie that involves Kev McVeigh! (How are you doing this, Kev? Seriously, do we have to change our passwords or something?) Kev’s choice was another Josephine Saxton novel Queen of the States, which he praised as ‘a hilarious, sensual but subtly delightful gem’. And joining him is Nick Larter with his choice of Liege-Killer by Christopher Hinz – ‘A Stunning debut. A brilliantly realised world, two compelling heroes in Nick and Gillian and breathtaking baddies in the Paratwa’.

Congratulations, Kev and Nick, your copies of Eric Frank Russell‘s Wasp and Connie Willis‘s To Say Nothing of the Dog will soon be winging their way to your eager hands.
