Do you like reviewing quality #SciFi novels?

Astronomicon: Icarus front cover imageLet’s face it, organic reviews, those which readers just spontaneously choose to write without coercion or encouragement from the author, are just too hard to get. I thought that hundreds of sales of this novel would lead to a few dozen reviews, but this has not happened. Now I could just sit back, let the sales continue and just assume that reviews will follow, but that’s not my style. So I’m starting a new offer:

In return for reviewing Astronomicon: Icarus on either Amazon or GoodReads (or both!), I will supply you with a e-book copy of Icarus in either .mobi or .epub format via e-mail. There is a clear element of trust here because I will have to give you the e-novel before I find out for sure if you’re going to write a review and post it on Goodreads or Amazon.

Please feel under no pressure whatsoever to write a review which in any way strays from your own personal opinion. Do not treat the receipt of a free e-book as bribe or encouragement to write a falsely good review. I want to see genuine, unbiased reviews.


Send me an e-mail (paul @ and let me know which file version you would prefer. I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Woohoo another good review on Amazon!

Astronomicon: Icarus front cover imageI have to admit that Astronomicon: Icarus is just about my favourite Astronomicon book, so far anyway. Being a standalone novel, it’s not part of the ongoing series but it is set very much in the same universe. If you haven’t already heard about it, you can find out more here.


It’s gathered two reviews on and one on So far it looks like my US readers love it, but those from here in the UK just think it’s quite good. I am curious as to why that might be. Looks like I need to get more reviews!
