Witches of Lychford by Paul Cornell – A Great Intro to his Work

Witches of LychfordWitches of Lychford by Paul Cornell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Short but exceptionally good. Cornell has a wonderful way with language, even the crude kind. Wonderful use of the word Wankery.
The main characters in this are great and I really came to like the three of them.
A lot of development in such a short story is a credit to the author.
The story itself is very good and the couple of twists and flipping of convention make it a really interesting read.

About Paul Walsh

I'm a big fan of fantasy and scifi, which would make up most of my reading but will branch out often enough. Favourite authors vary over time but generally include Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Conn Iggulden, Robert Harris, Karen Maitlan, Kate Mosse, Anne Rice, Philip K Dick, Ray Bradbury. John Scalzi, Mark Lawrence, Pat Rothfuss and a host of others. I'm not the harshest reviewer but will note down a few words on all books I read.
