The Created was a clever mix of alien species and technology. It is a fast read and will definitely get the mind thinking about what technology could be used for in the future. It is an enjoyable read, even if it the parts were very distinct in the writing and feel. And once in a while, it might be necessary to check that potted plant that seems to be moving when you’re not watching it.
Within each of the judging teams for SPSFC there are roughly (30) books randomly assigned as their “slush pile” and this makes up each teams allocation. At Team Escapist, after some moving and shuffling around, we ended up with 28 books as our official allocation.
Hello all and welcome to another SPSFC2 post from us at Team Escapist. As the competition is officially now underway, we thought it would be prudent to let you all know a little about each of the 28 books in our team’s slush pile. Below you’ll find each of our books listed (in alphabetical order) with their covers and blurbs so you can get hyped with us (as well as a few affiliate links to Amazon)! I’m not going to lie, there are a lot of good looking books in our team’s slush pile, so I think we are going to have some tough decisions in the future! Wish us luck and maybe read along with us!
Escapist Book Co. is entering the fray and signing on to be a judge for this years SPSFC! What’s the SPSFC, you ask? It stands for Self Published Science Fiction Competition and, well, it’s just what it says it is! Born out of the desire to have a science fiction equivalent to Mark Lawrence’s SPFBO (Self Published Fantasy Blog Off) and hosted by Hugh Howey and Duncan Swan, the SPSFC is entering its second year!
