My round up of the books I’ve read in 2019 – including some of the year’s most hard-hitting book awards, such as “Best zombie kangaroo of the year” and “Smartest spiders of the year”.
Title: The Death House
Author: Sarah Pinborough
From the back: Toby’s life was perfectly normal . . . until it was unravelled by something as simple as a blood test.
Title: Mark A King
Author: Metropolitan Dreams
From the back: This is a tale of two cities.
Darkness and light.
Sinners and angels.
Title: The Last Days of Jack Sparks
Author: Jason Arnopp
From the back: It was no secret that journalist Jack Sparks had been researching the occult for his new book. No stranger to controversy, he’d already triggered a furious Twitter storm by mocking an exorcism he witnessed.
Title: The Sheriff
Author: Simon Fairbanks
From the back: The Sheriffs wander the clouds to keep peace across Nephos.
Sheriff Denebola is recruited by young Toby to help rid his village of a winged demon. The demon has tormented the people of Angel’s Keep every night for the past week so Denebola vows to capture the creature.
Title: The Garden
Author: James Kester
From the back: Throughout human history, the peddlers of certainty have reigned supreme. When Galileo first cast doubt about the place of the Earth within the cosmos, he was condemned . . . Either you believed that God’s Eden was the garden of all life, or you were a heretic.

Did I mention that Double Vision is out on Saturday? Did I mention that it’s only bloody well available for pre-order now? Yes? Maybe once or twice? Well, in an unscheduled interlude to the Double Vision public service announcements, and a possible break (but no guarantees) from cat pictures, let’s talk about books. Ah, them damn fine lovely booky smelling books. Mmmm. MMMM. Ah, riffle the pages, smell them fine booky smells. *Ahhhh* Hang on – you want more book talk? More serious book talk?
