Steampunk and science fiction author Lavie Tidhar, whose novel Osama was this year shortlisted for the BSFA Award but cruelly not for the Arthur C Clarke Award, has reviewed Adrift on the Sea of Rains on his blog. He writes: “This is probably the best piece of science fiction I’ve read so far this year, and would be a more than worthy nominee for a BSFA Award next year.” Which makes me most happy indeed.
Lavie’s review, in all its complimentary glory, is here. As he says himself, I urge you to read it.

Congrats on all the acclaim and positive attention flowing your way. Long overdue. ADRIFT ON THE SEA OF RAINS is a superb work of fiction, speculative or otherwise, and a tale that showcases your skill as a writer and your enviable and daring imagination.

I think ‘cruelly not for the Arthur C Clarke award’ might be going to far, makes it sound like the judges were out for some kind of revenge!
