An Intriguing Read


I give this book five well deserved stars.

It takes  a while to get going.  But, Andrew G. Claymore’s science fiction novel ‘The Black Ships’ is worth taking the time to read. The premise is intriguing to say the least. What happened to the employees of a mining company sent to Mars? What actually occurs is not for me to tell, but for you to find out as I did – you won’t be disappointed.

Like most people we meet in everyday life , some we instantly like, others we detest. To that end, Claymore has created a fascinating cross-section of individuals for you to conjure with.  If, like me, you love believable pure Science Fiction, you will find this a thoroughly enjoyable read.
