Reader reviews

"Being a long time Bowie fan I get such a kick out of all the references and how well they're blended in. Every time I spot one I get giddy like a school kid."


"Just to say that I finished the 'other' book this morning – I was really hooked on these 2 stories, they would make a great film or 2."

Janet Haigh

"I'm actually reading these books for the third time, the intriguing story distracts me from discovering little Bowie subtleties."

Andrew Crook

The stories are currently being adapted into an incredible 21st Century stage production.
