When I set out to write Luck and Death at the Edge of the World I wanted to take an action-oriented science fiction story and build some real depth and complexity into it.
At the same time, I didn’t want to get bogged down and accidentally leave out the action, the exhileration, the fun — which is where the Tics and Flamingo Girl, the Hungry Ghosts, the Dogs and the Spider come in.
According to at least one reviewer on Amazon, the effort hasn’t been completely in vain:
There’s mystery, an AI who thinks he’s Alan Turing, cool tech, devious characters, and plenty of action. Gat Burroughs is (as all the best heroes are) a conflicted character, and I’m looking forward to catching up with him in the next installment.
I’ll definitely take that as an endorsement of Luck and Death as having a reasonable balance between action and depth.
