Book Review: Two Tribes by Chris Beckett

There’s something comforting about starting a Chris Beckett novel. Not that the subject matter is necessarily comforting but, as soon as I delve into the first page, I feel in safe hands. I feel that the novel knows where it’s going, knows its own pace and is capable of whisking me there in perfect safety while I remain oblivious to the world outside.

The Sound of Death in Estonian

My alien murder mystery story The Sound of Death, which was first published at IGMS, is out today in Estonian at Reaktor magazine. This is the first translation of this story. 

It's my second story in Reaktor and my third to be translated into Estonian, following Travel by Numbers in Algernon and The Righteous Indignation of the Naked Mole Rat in Reaktor last year.
