WHAT THE REVIEWERS ARE SAYING ABOUT PICA

“One of the most charming fantasy novels I’ve read in years. An engrossing and original story, beautifully told. Wonderful!”

Michael Moorcock

Pica AccentYA

“It’s one of those ‘one of a kind, never read that before’ books … it’s a great read that will change your perceptions of the world and make you think twice about what humanity really is.”

Confessions of a Book Lover

“Pica is beautiful, complex, forceful and always gripping. Jeff Gardiner is undoubtedly one of the greatest storytellers.”

Paulo Brito, Porto VIII

“I loved this book, it’s just so unique and eye opening. The story never gets dull. As the magic and fantasy aspect gets deeper and bigger, so does reality. It was an incredible read.”

Ailsa Abraham’s Alchemy

Reduced for one week only from 19.02.2016

Ailsa1
What would you give for a world free of war, dependence on fossil fuels, pollution and terrorism?  That is the premise for the Alchemy series

An accidental discovery solving the problem of fossil fuel brings this Utopian vision closer but at what cost? Could there be unforeseen consequences and how dire would they be? Who could fight demons if all established religion had been abolished?

Put aside demons and add two people more doomed than Romeo and Juliet who are forced to fight alongside each other. Mix in some very energetic Goths and an undercover Christian Granny for an explosive result as  the stories move at breakneck speed into the near-future blending magical realism with pizza, ritual with slang, deepest hatred with impossible love, shape-shifting with public transport.
