Two Doctors Review
Rise: Birth of a Revolution, by Mark Moore, is a worthy debut novel exploring the themes of revolution through a new lens. While it’s not perfect, I’m excited to see where this narrative goes in future installments!
Every possible “rule” taught to authors in creative writing class, Jemisin breaks with ease. And the beauty of it all? Every time she does it, it makes sense. It works. It’s perfect. She uses parentheses, missing punctuation, broken paragraphs, every tool possible to blend voice and tense and perspective and character into the narrative.
Read about C. D. Tavenor’s new submission policy! Importantly, it includes a guarantee: he’ll buy every book he reviews.
Just go read it for yourself. It’s hard to describe why this book is good without spoiling a single part of it. You need to dive into its pages, and it’ll suck you in immediately.
NK Jemisin’s How Long ‘til Black Future Month has blown my mind away with what is possible through the short fiction medium. As an author, I learned from every page of that book about what it means to tell stories through fiction; as a reader, I loved every narrative.
I think I’m learning I don’t love adventure fantasy, but others might enjoy these books!
The Last Letter reminded me why I loved the zombie genre in high school. For readers looking for a return to classic zombie fiction, or a story written in an alternative format similar to World War Z, The Last Letter is for you!
Throughout the book, Kennedy injects ridiculous, fun, creative, and downright terrifying future tech which is outlandish, prescient, realistic, and sad all bundled into one. It’s a monumental piece of future world building, comparative to older novels like Neuromancer or Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.
So why Personnel? I wanted to take a moment to tell everyone why I’ve chosen to invest countless hours in Tyler’s writing, working with him to craft a story ready for the world to read. Two Doctors Media Collaborative is working with Tyler because we believe in his story, and we believe in his voice.
