Reviews to die for

The antipope – Charles Stross – has been brave enough to post his most negative Amazon reviews.

‘The writing is some of the worst I have ever experienced.’ (Accelerando)

‘Reminds me of cheap SF comics of the 50s and badly written online adventure games.’ (Halting State)

Déjà Vu had one absolute stinker of a review, and it was written for Interzone by Martin Lewis. It was his first review for Interzone and, as I understand it, his last. I can’t find it on the web and I ceremonially burnt my copy…but I think it said something like, ‘Tedious characterisation, awful dialogue, generally so boring I wanted to poke my eyes out’.
