Review of Crossed Genres Year Two in Innsmouth Free Press

Mar 18th, 2011 | By | Category: CG Blog

Author Mike Griffiths has reviewed Crossed Genres Year Two for Innsmouth Free Press. It’s a very positive review: “These are excellent and entertaining stories.

A review of Crossed Genres Year Two (25% off until Saturday!)

Jan 4th, 2011 | By | Category: CG Blog

Yesterday, The Portal posted a wonderful review of CG’s 2nd anthology, Crossed Genres Year Two.

New reviews/blurbs for A Festival of Skeletons

Oct 22nd, 2010 | By | Category: CG Blog

We just received this great blurb about A Festival of Skeletons: “If you have no interest at all in reading a fabulous, well thought-out, engaging story, stay away from RJ Astruc’s writing – you’ll get sucked in and read it anyway. The moment I started reading, she dragged me along for an extraordinary, outrageous ride […]



Another review of A Festival of Skeletons!

Oct 8th, 2010 | By | Category: News & Announcements

There is a new review of RJ Astruc’s A Festival of Skeletons, this time from Only the Best Science Fiction & Fantasy: A Festival of Skeletons is a character driven novel that had me cracking up left and right. There are plenty of sex jokes that get a bit old after a while, but overall, […]



New review of RJ Astruc’s A Festival of Skeletons

Oct 7th, 2010 | By | Category: News & Announcements

There is a new review of A Festival of Skeletons out on SciFi & Fantasy Books, and it’s quite glowing: A Festival of Skeletons is like a love child of Terry Pratchett and Robert Rankin – a pacy, intelligent comedy novel that’s crazier than a cat on catnip, with excellent characterisation that doesn’t take itself […]
