Peter Sidell

I love to find a new and very promising author - here's one! Short stories which ticked a lot of boxes for me.

The Reality Principle


My review - 

This is a book of short stories which you can read start to finish in an evening or, if you prefer, intersperse them with longer books. I intended to use them to break up longer novels but I found them sufficiently compelling to read them straight through.

The stories are all quite dark and make you think. If pressed, I’d call them speculative fiction. Some have elements of science fiction but also some have psychological and philosophical leanings. The writing is very good and the characters well-drawn. I really enjoyed reading them. This is a great beginning for the author who I see is currently writing a novel. I look forward to this very much.

  1. A really nice book. Fine writing. Well-drawn characters. Well, to me, these are the major components of a pretty good book. And that's great a write who just began writing understands this. Actually, I'd never thought I'd love reading a book written by a contemporary author (I love classics and contemporary authors sometimes sound all the same). And I guess I should thank that person who ordered write my college essay team to write a review on this team. If it wasn't for that I'd never come to read this book.
