M T McGuire

After having enjoyed her K'Barthan series, I'm pleased to see M T McGuire is still making us laugh.

Escape from B-Movie Hell

My review - 

Student Andi Turbot discovers something disturbing about her best friend Eric. He’s really a massively tall lobster-type creature with seven eyes. An alien. He’s on a recce mission to earth to find out if the natives are sentient. I’m not sure I could prove that I am. She is taken on board a huge craft and then the politics begin. There’s a meteor on the way to smash into earth. If humans were wiped out, the aliens could colonise. It’s against their laws to kill sentient creatures but someone’s stopping them from deflecting the meteor. Like I said, politics.

This is a funny story, full of great characters, even though most of them wade through marmite scented goo and have a tendency to clack their pincers at you. There’s serious stuff at the bottom of it but it’s taken lightly and, although it’s a long book, trust me, it flies past. I love this and would enjoy more or similar.

I received a review copy of this book for an honest review.


  1. Thank you so much. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! When you say, 'I would enjoy more or similar.' The w.i.p. Has the working title Space Dustmen.

  2. Light fantasy, what could be better for recreation?
