WHEN THE DEMANDS OF GENRE MARKETING SHOW ON THE PAGE:

The Brown Wedge • 281 views

When you have a remarkably bogstandard piece of adventure fantasy (Mothership agane) where the whole thing seems neatly wrapped up in time for the last twenty pages. And then, all of a sudden, there is a revelation, a character goes missing and the quest starts again: almost the opposite of a Deus Ex Machina – a Genesis Ex Machina? What we have here is the artificial work of an editor to turn a perfectly simple novel into book one of a trilogy. Phooey.
