Moon’s Artifice by Tom Lloyd

    Tom Lloyd’s Moon’s Artifice may very well be the least talked about book from the last 6 months that people really should be talking about. At least of the books I have read. Earlier this year I deemed a new release over-hyped. This one is the opposite. It’s under-hyped. After reading it, I […]

The Corpse Rat King by Lee Battersby
