Michael R. Fletcher remains one of the most underrated authors of fantasy today and I am continually impressed by his amazing achievements in terms of making stories which are both rich, well-characterized, and pardon my French but fucked up. He is one of the voices of independent grimdark and we are all the better for his work. Interestingly, my favorite of his works isn't dark fantasy but something much more modern in the stylized hyper-violent GHOSTS OF TOMORROW.
Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
If you call yourself a fan of Cyberpunk or just Sci-Fi in general, you owe it to yourself to read Ghosts of Tomorrow.
Let me begin by saying that Michael R. Fletcher is the best thing to happen to my Kindle/bookshelf in the past 5 months. Beyond Redemption was my top read of 2016 and the sequel, The Mirror's Truth, is 1000 times better. Not sure how he pulled that off, but I can't put anything past him. Now, with Ghosts of Tomorrow, Fletcher has moved away from Fantasy/Grimdark and ventured into Science Fiction. When I heard this news, I thought he had gone out binge drinking and had forgotten that he was a fantasy writer. I decided to give it a shot (get it, shot?) and was pleasantly surprised that IT WASN'T SHITE!
