Being of an unemployed disposition, I have a little more time to engage in writery activities. And I was offered the chance to do some guest reviews on a friend's reviews blog/website. So I took it. My review of Iain M. Banks' latest Culture novel, Surface Detail, is now available to read here. I'd also recommend following the blog, for no-nonsense, common sense reviews (apart from mine, obviously - I can't resist showing off!).
