Books one and two have been reviewed:
‘Thick with satire, irony and humour, The Mice is a rare gem, and if you’re the sort of person who likes to talk about the artistic credentials of sequential art as social commentary, or you simply like good sci-fi well told, then this will make you grin.’ Starburst
‘This is smart science fiction.’ SFX magazine
‘Multi-layered and thoughtful; a great read…’ Forbidden Planet
‘There’s nothing else like it . 4/5 stars’ Sci Fi Now magazine
