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!

This is the first of the “Astronomicon Universe” books. These books are within the main Astronomicon universe, sharing the same technology, history and races, but do not form part of the ongoing core story. Astronomicon: Icarus can be read as part of the Astronomicon series or on its own as a standalone novel.


Set in 2078, it tells the intriguing story of the deep space mining vessel Icarus and its discovery of a stranded prototype vessel deep within the Trojan asteroid cluster in the orbit of Jupiter. The crew of the Icarus decide to rescue the survivors of the prototype vessel and unwitting become involved in a battle to protect secrets, save lives and escape with their own. Few things are what they appear to be, but will they work everything out in time?


I would love to hear what everyone thinks of this exciting, new novel. I have several more non-core Astronomicon novels in the early planning stages, and it would be excellent to get some feedback before I start work on those properly.
