Typhoon Time book review on File 770.

Check the latest review of my novel Typhoon Time on the Hugo winning fan site File770 Review by: Susan Forest.

Typhoon Time is a fast-paced, big-cast science fiction thriller that reads like a blockbuster movie.”

“… one of the key delights for me in this book was the juxtaposition of modern and historical attitudes, particularly around the agency of women and minorities.”

Typhoon Time – Author Interview with Raymond Bolton

Time for Typhoon Time’s media time.

From the interview:
