Mortal Ghost

by L. Lee Lowe

This is excellent, the excerpt doesn't show what a compelling, vivid style the author has. Following Jesse's story, finding out about what he thinks his past contains, and then the twists which follow, as well as the inter-relationships between the key characters and the look at families, good and bad, had me hooked all day long till I reached the final page. I especially liked the mystical and SF elements, reminds me of early John Wyndham in places. Unmissable.

Star Surgeon

by Alan Nourse

Solid pulp fiction, nothing sparkling but well-written and I enjoyed the alien viewpoint and the medical stuff doesn't seem too dated. A fun, quick read, try it.

The Cinema Murder

by E. Phillips Oppenheim

Satisfying mystery, slightly dated but the descriptions of America of the period are fascinating to the modern reader; little bit plodding, but persevere, the twist at the end is good stuff, and watching Philip's character develop is enjoyable.

Doctor Who: The Sands of Time

by Justin Richards

Fabulous classic style Dr Who novelisation - this features Peter Davison's doctor along with Nyssa and Tegan and is a complex tale of Egyptian mummies in Victorian times that bounces back and forth by several thousand years and plays with time and paradoxes. Great action and has definitely caught the characters voices nicely, with a solid plot and some lovely little asides. Highly recommended.
