It's been a little while, but a couple of things have happened:
The Reef was reviewed in the Guardian a couple of weeks ago – which is terrific news:
"Newton treads new ground in his attempt to bring literary concerns to the fantasy genre. The result is a sometimes uneven path between fantastical exoticism and the more mundane aspects of the mainstream, but a path nevertheless worth taking."
It continues to sell well at Waterstones (though I presume so since the wholesaler, Gardners, sends me new orders practically every day…)
No-Man and Other Tales has also been reviewed at Zone-SF, and again it is rather splendid:
"… living proof that Richards is getting better and better as a storyteller and a creator of well carved characters. Which is good news not only for the fans of novellas but for any lover of solid and entertaining dark fiction."
Copies still available, and you know where to buy a copy of either – or both. :)
