Strange Horizons Reviews, August 1-5
Kicking off August's reviews is Dan Hartland's take on God's War by Kameron Hurley, which Dan, with a few reservations, is very impressed by. Katherine Farmar makes her Strange Horizons debut with a review of the Haikasoru book Mardock Scramble, by Tow Ubukata, which she finds rather exhausting, full of great ideas and moments but on the whole a bit of an assault on the senses. Hallie O'Donovan rounds out the week with a review of Franny Billingsley's Chime, a YA novel which Hallie compares to the work of Diana Wynne Jones and Frances Hardinge.
