I reviewed British writer Steve Cockayne's very first novel Wanderers and Islanders way back in our February 2002 issue and was impressed indeed. With the completion of the acclaimed trilogy that was begun with that novel, Cockayne has moved from debutante to player and this month sees the release of his first novel for the young adult market. The Good People is a dark fantasy in the British tradition featuring the discovery of a secondary world in the English countryside by two young brothers. It is "... a spellbinding adventure story and an extraordinarily original novel of growing up. Disturbing, compelling and beautifully written.". A hard cover release from Atom.
