The site SciFi365.net has chosen its 2014 Books Of The Year, and Lamikorda made the list!
“It had been a long, long time since we’d come across a new writer with a traditional approach to Science Fiction, where world-building, alien cultures and languages were essential to the story. That’s why D. R. Merrill’s ‘Lamikorda’ made such an impression. This is old-school Sci Fi in the Frank Herbert or Vernor Vinge style and all the better for it.”
SciFi365.net was started by three Science Fiction fans who are also heavily involved in the independent and self-publishing industries, to give other fans a way of finding top new and established writers. Their unsolicited reviews give global exposure to scores of indie Sci Fi authors.
