    A Cracking Good Read

    Welcome to 'B' movie Hell is a delight to read, I expected something worthy of the 'Golden Turkey' awards! What I actually found was a well written, funny and riveting read. I actually read the whole book in one sitting! MT McGuire's style reminds me of Harry Harrison's unique comic style, as in the Stainless Steel Rat series. However, the pace of the action found me holding my breath at times and the humour kept me chuckling during the early hours of the morning. I have read a few of this author's works and , as yet, I have not been disappointed. My final verdict is 4.5 out of 5 (on the basis that there is always room for improvement and another book

    MT hits the spot again

    I'm a big fan of MTM's K'Barthan series and have been eagerly awaiting the release of a new work. This is a really enjoyable read which I kept picking up at any available opportunity. The only small negative is that it is written in the first person from the narrators perspective which is unusual nowadays and took a bit of getting used to and one of the chapters doesn't feature the narrator so the point of view changes then changes back again, this is only a minor niggle and I was more aware of it as I've recently been reading a series on POV by a creative writing teacher. The many plus points includes the humour both in the situations and the conversations between characters, also you are kept guessing until nearly the end who is the actual bad guy from the various characters behaving badly. I would definitely recommend this to anyone from teenager upwards.

    Not a Page Turner

    This review was first published on Kurt's Frontier. Synopsis: Andi Turbot is a London college student who does standup comedy in her spare time. She would never think of herself as a science fiction heroine. She has a friend named Eric with whom she has a close, platonic relationship. When Eric reveals that he is extraterrestrial, she doesn’t believe him at first. Then he drops his disguise and turns into a seven-foot, lobster-shaped alien covered in Marmite-scented goo. He informs her that a meteor is on a collision course with Earth. She is left with two choices. Convince Eric’s superiors that her homeworld is worth saving or escape and do it herself. With political intrigue that rivals humanity’s, neither will be easy. Review: M. T. McGuire’s novel is a lighthearted romp in through old science fiction tropes. There are strange aliens that are somehow endearing. There is a planet smashing crisis to overt to save humanity. Andi Turbot is introduced to Eric, a Gamalian pilot scouting Earth. He wasn’t supposed to get this close to her but somehow became her friend. Now he feels duty bound to save her planet. Much of their success hinges on convincing Dodge (a title) Sneed that she is sentient. Considering that Earth is strategically placed for a colonizing expedition, this revelation is something that those in power will not easily accept. The book is entertaining, and the concepts are interesting. The interplay between Andi, Eric, Smeesch, and Neewong is fun. However, it is not a page-turner. I was able to put the book down for long stretches. Still, if you like the old B-movies, it’s worth a read.

    Really enjoyed this! 3K

    I really enjoyed this. As the name of the book suggests, the story does not pretend to be anything other than what it is. As I was reading, I had the silhouettes of 3 robots in front of the story
