Happy Halloween from Christmasland

It’s Halloween, which means it’s officially long past time to start getting ready for Christmas. Don’t believe me, the Christmas lights are already lit here in Covent Garden, just outside Gollancz Towers.

They only bloody love it. This week’s Geek reviewer is Mike Kerr, and we publish his review here with his kind consent.  For those Geeks who weren’t lucky enough to get a copy this time, there is good news.
