Beautifully acted, elegantly written and seamlessly directed it is probably the best tale of political intrigue you'll ever watch.

A picture might be worth a thousand words, but on this occasion pictures and words have combined to create something which speaks volumes to any willing to listen.

Harte manages to combine a series of intricate plots lines, intriguing characters and the creation of his version of renaissance Europe without ever becoming confusing.

Back To Front Live In London might contain material close to forty years old, but it feels far more alive than most of what you hear being released today.

Does the nearly impossible of going behind the facts and figures to get to the emotional heart of the story without ever descending into sentimentally.

Beady eyed Canadian iconoclast with a keen sense of irony.
Introduction
I'm the author of the recently published What Will Happen In Eragon IV, a critical analysis of Christopher Paolini's Inheritance cycle with an eye for predicting what will happen in the concluding book of his series that was commissioned by Ulysses Press. My work has appeared on line since 2005 at Blogcritics.org and my own site Leap In The Dark, and I've been the editor of the South East Asian arts and culture site Epic India Magazine since 2006. In 2008 the German edition of Rolling Stone Magazine published a special feature on Willy DeVille of which I contributed the text made up of two interviews combined as one and various side articles about Willy. I also publish articles on a freelance basis with the German based web magazine Qantara.de.

Ulysses Press will be publishing a second commissioned work in November 2011 - a companion book to the Percy Jackson series, I've co-authored this one with the two young creators of www.percyquest.com who know the series far better than anyone else aside from the author Rick Riordan. Unlike the Eragon book this won't strictly be predictions as to what's going to happen for the rest of the series - instead we've done a lot of background work including a dictionary of the gods and monsters who make their presences felt in the pages of the books.
