NEW REVIEW: S.T. Gulik - Birth (2016)

July 21, 2017
Next up over at DLS Reviews we have a full dissection of Irish absurdist author S.T. Gulik’s debut novel ‘Birth’ (2016) which forms the first part in his ‘Chakra Kong Trilogy’.

I think this quote from the review pretty much sums it up…

“If you imagine a weirdly uncensored episode of ‘Futurama’ that’s been written by Duncan Bradshaw, or some other strangely eccentric Bizzaro writer, then you’re going to be edging in the right direction of what Gulik has to offer.”

July 17, 2017
One of the things that DLS Reviews has been attempting to do is catalogue some of the more obscure or limited publications.  One author who has had a number of incredibly limited publications and ‘fan convention only’ offerings over the years is Guy N Smith.

Slowly but surely DLS Reviews will be reviewing each and every title, as a way of not only providing an in-depth dissection of the publications, but also documenting their existence.

As such, the following chapbooks have all now been ad...

NEW REVIEW: Deon Meyer - Fever (2017)

June 10, 2017
Having spent the last two weeks in Tenerife, relaxing in the sun, drinking local lager from frosted glasses and eating way too much food, it was sadly time to return to DLS HQ in a rather grey and wet Wales.

Whilst I was away I had chance to churn through South African author Deon Meyer’s epic post-apocalyptic novel ‘Fever’ (2017).  And my god was the book one hell of a read.  Think Stephen King’s ‘The Stand’ (1978) mixed with John Christopher’s ‘The Death Of Grass’ (1956), o...
