Dear Professor Roberts, We (that is SFRevu, being a website at are pleased to inform you that we are running a review of your 2006 book Gradisisl in our imminent March issue. Which is to say that inasmuch as you've done all the real work writing the thing, and the good folks at Pyr have gone to the trouble of bringing out a US edition, we're hitching a ride on your coattails by pretending that reading the book and dashing off a few lines actually qualifies as original and creative effort. Actually, I shouldn't say that. Todd Baker, who wrote the review did a fairly good job of it. I can, however make light of my own contribution here…to come up with some of the usual (and hopefully one or two not quite so usual) questions for a Q&A piece to run alongside it. Any day now. Could you help us out by doing the real work and filling in a few comments in response to the questions below? Ernest Lilley Editor - SFRevu

From official release/information:

I am a writer in my forties. In addition to writing, I am Professor of Nineteenth-Century Literature at Royal Holloway, University of London. I live with my wife Rachel and our daughter Lily a little way west of London. I have published six novels: Salt (2000), On (2001), Stone (2002), Polystom (2003), The Snow (2004) and Gradisil (2006), and two novellas [Park Polar (2001) and Jupiter Magnified (2003)]. There's also a collection of short stories: Swiftly. For more information on these novels and novellas, please see the writing section of the site. I've also published a fair wodge of criticism, including the lengthy Palgrave Critical History of Science Fiction (2005), although nobody seems to have noticed that one. What else? Oh, some parodies: I have also published five parodies [The Soddit (2003), The McAtrix Derided (2003), The Sellamillion (2004), Star Warped (2005) and The Va Dinci Cod (2005)]. There's more where all that came from. Well, I say more. More of the same, at the very least.
