I know, I know, it's Sci-Fi. But I've read 12 non-science fiction novels before starting this, so it's okay.
Also, my copy was published in the early nineties, but looks like it belongs in the seventies. Cost £1.50 at an indie book shop.
My justification just keep getting weaker.
So anyway, so far it's shaping up to be far better than Excession, and exceptionally creepy at times. Good so far.
