Vector on Headless

By Adam Roberts | January 27, 2008
Categories: Book News

Discouraging days. Martin McGrath, fluently and rather wittily, decapitates Land of the Headless in the bsfa journal, Vector, with a scimitar-swinging review that begins by invoking not so much a clever albatross as a clever roc, and goes on to find, well, nothing to like about the book at all. His main charge is that the novel fails as satire. I didnít mean it to be a satire; but that, somehow, only makes the critique more discouraging. Ah well.

    I'm about half-way through the book and I love(d) it (to death). I guess one could construe it to be a satire, but that is clearly not the intent.
