Vin Of Venus by Paul D. Brazill, David Cranmer & Garner Elliott

One of the joys of the kindle era is that speculative fiction such as Vin Of Venus can be published. Not the kind of work a publisher would have looked at prior to it and what a loss that would have been.

Two fantastically different genres dance together deliciously in this fusion of crime and science fiction plotlines. One of the most carefully and slickly edited e-books I have read in a while. The narrative flows wonderfully like hot butter from a pan. Intrigue follows intrigue and we slowly explores Vin's fantasies or are they, as he believes, memories?

The critical reviewer could no doubt pick holes in it but I had far too much fun reading it. A good old fashioned action/sci-fi yarn with a twist. If like me you miss the likes of Farmer and Niven but also like your crime fiction then this one is for you. More please gentlemen!

Genre: Science Fiction / Crime
Publisher: Beat To A Pulp
Format: E-Book
