Feedback from readers

“Very very good. I’m not writing any more so that I don’t spoil it for others!”

“Great novel. Very well written. Incursio explains the Thargoids really well, I always wondered why they were trying to kill me. Thanks for the great read.”

“Very nice work!”

“A smashing good tale!”

“I’ve got to wait another 6 months!? You torment me, sir! An excellent read – the “Oolite Saga” flies from strength to strength!”

“Great story!”

“Can’t wait until Christmas! Write faster!!!”

“A worthy successor of ‘Status Quo’ and ‘Mutabilis’ ”

“Drew, like his stories, gets better with every iteration. Incursio is a real story where the reader will feel the emotional highs and lows of the characters. The fact that this just happens to be an Oolite inspired work of fiction is simply a bonus.”

“Balls to the wall, punch the injectors and hang on. It’s going to be a wild ride!”
