Synopsis of The Etched City

Fleeing the ghosts of their violent past, two former revolutionaries - the roguish, rakish Gwynn and the taciturn Raule - escape from the desert Copper Country to the tropical city of Ashamoil. As they salvage new lives from the rubble of the old, they discover past ghosts are future ghosts too.

...a rich meal in every sense of the word. -- John Berlyne, SFRevu

The Etched City has all the vitality of a first novel and few of the vices. -- Michael Moorcock, The Guardian

THE ETCHED CITY is definitely a must-read for lovers of literate dark fantasy. -- Paula Guran , DarkEcho Horror

Hopefully the various people who hand out best first novel prizes have heard of this Book, because they should be lauding it. -- Cheryl Morgan, Emerald City ambitious and casually brilliant debut, erudite, lavishly written. -- James Sallis, Fantasy & Science Fiction

Perhaps we missed something but for now, this is what we've got: a good novel but nothing that awakened a compulsion or enlightenment such that we wanted to read it again -- Inchoatus
