Book Review: A Candle for Malka by Louise Carey
I enjoyed Louise Carey’s debut solo novel Inscape a year or two back, a sparkling mix of cyberpunk, espionage and post-apocalyptic social stratification. This new novella, A Candle for Malka is more of a hard-SF, near-space corporate saga which I imagined from reading the blurb was going to have an Alien vibe. I was intrigued to see whether the brightness and freshness of Inscape would be reflected in this book.
