BC: August 2018 Pickups

Thanks to Fopp's two books for £5 offer, this month I spent a total of £25.75 on paperbacks (that 75p was from a charity shop purchase). For those that don't know, Fopp is part of the HMV family here in the UK, selling music, films, books, posters, clothing etc. - specialising in more of the indie and obscure media than other outlets. 

Book review

Review: The Clarity of Cold Steel: A Steampunk Detective Novel – Kevin Wright

The digest: The Clarity of Cold Steel has one of the most unique takes on a post-apocalyptic world that I can remember – it is clearly the result of much hard work, and the efforts seem to have paid off. The plot is absolutely stunning, and the development of our protagonist through his speech and other nuances is very well handled.
