I read Phil Tucker’s Path of Flames after seeing a fantastic review of it on Pornokitsch. The book is has strong characters–I love character driven stories–but is still very much action driven. It’s a novel that’s a natural fit for the Gemmell Award, and I loved it. The sequel, The Black Shriving, is also available, and the third book in the series comes out in September.
Anyway, I was fortunate enough to interview Phil about his work. It’s posted at SFFWorld.com. Here’s the link.
