One of the highlights of the Writers of the Future award-week I attended last August was meeting Steven Savile. As a past winner of the contest (who has many novels published now) he was there to chat with us about his experiences in the publishing industry.
He also gave each of us a copy of his novel Silver.
I started reading Silver a couple days ago and finished it five minutes ago. It was excellent — suspense, adventure, religious secrets, prophecy, terrorism… it had it all. I’m eagerly waiting for its sequel, Gold.
