More titles to consider
Kennard, who has already shown himself to be an exceptional poet, has now tackled prose with equal success. He clearly has a comprehensive and practical knowledge of the cyberpunk genre which he uses as a medium to craft a compelling story that sits comfortably within the canon of William Gibson or Richard K.

Morgan without being overly derivative. If it has one shortcoming, it is that the ending is slightly rushed.
After a frenetic fifty or so pages, I would have liked the pace to slow as the end drew near, but this in no way weakens the pretty dramatic conclusion. What Kennard brings to this style of prose that is rarely seen in other authors, is a use of language especially syntax as an emotional vehicle. As the protagonist, a young and exceeding bright girl, starts to doubt herself and get lost in her own constructed world, we start to doubt her too. The writing shifts from fast and forward-moving to paranoid and intertwining. Holophin by Luke Kennard is published by Penned in the Margins and will be launched as a limited edition hardback on September 1st.
