Steeple received a 4 stars review from The Sun in April, I’m thrilled to say. The review said:
“The action is tense, the violence gruesome but compelling and the science fiction engaging. In other words, it’s every bit as good as its predecessor.”
Meanwhile in March I put together a whole heap of articles for the Gollancz blog to celebrate the smaller, cheaper “mass market” paperback of Steeple coming out, so I thought I’d list them here:
Six Standout SciFi Skyscrapers of the Screen – I look at six of the best monolithic dystopia towers from the movies, and invite votes on the blog and on Twitter – in each case Blade Runner’s Tyrell corporation won by a landslide.
High Rise Review – I was lucky enough to attend an advance screening of Ben Wheatley’s Ballard adaptation at the BFI. Here’s what I thought about this tale of madness in tall buildings.
Kenstibec’s driving test– I had some fun creating road signs for the ruined highways of post apocalyptic Britain in Barricade and Steeple. Check them out here.
