The fourth novel by Andy Secombe, an author now firmly established in the metaphysical stable of comic SF writers. His first two novels, Limbo and Limbo II put him on the map and gave us a clear flavour of his particularly tangential, goon-ish humour. His previous novel The Last House in the Galaxy was reviewed most favourably back in our May 05 issue. Now comes Endgame issued this month in mass market paperback from Tor UK, and it looks set to further cement Secombes reputation. Here's what the publishers have to say about it...
"Endgame ... grips the reader from the first line and holds them through a labyrinthine narrative that loops between hell, heaven and earth, the past and present-day and a web of fantastical intricacies. The fantasy is underpinned by Secombe's mordant wit, skilfully inserted historical reference and vividly created protagonists."
What this drily worded press release neglect to mention is that if Secombe's previous novels are anything to go by, Endgame is damned funny too!
