I loved Alan Campbell's superb début novel Scar Night when it came out back in July 2006. I felt that he was really on to something with his Peakean, city-based fantasy. A limited edition novella Lye Street, published soon after by Subterranean Press showed further promise. However, after an apparantly difficult time in the writing, I was sorry to find that - in my opinion at least - the follow up to book one, Iron Angel a huge disappointment - indeed a classic example of that "tricky" second novel.
Now Campbell offers us the third volume in the Deepgate Codex, God of Clocks (published by Tor UK in a smart hardcover edition) and hopefully he's now right back on track.
