QUICK REVIEW – Shadowrun: Nigel Findley Omnibus

shadowrun-nigel-findley-omnibusYou don’t have to be a fan of the Shadowrun setting to enjoy these urban fantasy/cyberpunk novels by the late Nigel Findley. The stories are all engaging, illustrative, and thoroughly enjoyable. While some knowledge of the Shadowrun world is helpful, you should be able to catch on fairly quickly through context. If you’re not familiar, the world is our future, magic has returned and so have elves, orcs, dwarves, trolls, and dragons.

I do love these stories, but I there are numerous typos, some of which cause me to re-read the sentence several times to work out what the word really means. I haven’t yet determined if this is a problem with adapting these books to the Kindle format, or if these typos existed in the original work. Still, they aren’t a show-stopper, and I’m sad we will get no more from this talented author.

It appears that neither the Omnibus, nor the individual stories, 2XS, Shadowplay, Lone Wolf, and House of the Sun are available on Amazon anymore, or anywhere I can find in electronic format. It’s a shame; from what I hear, Nigel Findley is among the most well-regarded of Shadowrun authors and the loss of his work in this format is a travesty.
