Four great reviews of Strata

By  |  5 Comments

The reviews for Strata, the dystopian sci-fi thriller I wrote with Steve Gaskell, have been rolling in, and they’ve been universally positive. Here’s a recap of how it’s been received:

“A twisted, fast-paced SF novella.”
— Fantasy Book Critic

“Intelligent science fiction.”

“The conceit of mixing solar engineering with a revolution … is an inspired mix.”
— Paul Weimer,

“Like all good speculative fiction, Strata is as much about now as it is about the future and Beaulieu and Gaskell do a tremendous job of making that connection. ”
A Staffer’s Musings

I’m so pleased that Strata has been received as well as it has. I always believed in the story, but it’s nice to see it being embraced where the rubber meets the road (if you’ll excuse the mixed metaphors).

    I notice that Strata is available for the kindle in the US.

    In Canada, the main ebook provider is kobo ( Listings also show up on the website, the major book chain in Canada.

    Any chance you might release strata on kobo format?

    Strata looks interesting and I would mind giving it a read..

    There are over 34 million of us Canadians here, so we are not exactly a tiny market.. 😉

      Yes, Kobo is in the works. They have a rather archaic sign-up process (done mostly through email for some reason). Hopefully I can get it uploaded there within the next week or two. I’ll announce something when that happens. Thanks for the note!
