Film Reviews, Films, Jon Wallace

We are delighted to welcome Jon Wallace back to the Gollancz Blog. Jon Wallace joins us to discuss Mad Max: Fury Road. Warning, spoilers are ahead.

When my debut novel, Barricade, was published last year, a few people were kind enough to compare its exhaust-choked action with the ‘Mad Max’ films.
