Review of Philip Palmer’s Debatable Space

My review of Philip Palmer’s Debatable Space is now online at Strange Horizons:

“Writing an entire novel in the first person is a stylistically brave and challenging exploit to undertake, particularly for one’s début, and in the sections set in the “present” of the multiple viewpoint characters, Palmer doesn’t do too badly. But Lena’s thought-diary sections fall foul of two cardinal sins of novel writing; one general, and one specific to science fiction.”

That’s me off Orbit’s Christmas card list, I think.
