The hugely talanted British writer Steph Swainston offers up a third instalment of her inventive, innovative and powerfully written fantasy sequence that began with The Year of Our War. The Modern World follows the events of No Present Like Time and I was lucky enough to be able to read this in manuscript form a few months ago. Simply put, it is just brilliant! Swainston is one of the few writers who truly lives up to the hype. If you've not yet discovered her writing, you're way out of touch!
