The Book of Secrets

I read Chris Roberson’s latest, The Book of Secrets from Angry Robot, on the train to and from FantasyCon. It is a fascinating idea: a secret history revealed through pastiches of stories from old pulp magazines and the like. The plot lost me around page 250 and went downhill from there. However, Dan Brown can make a fortune writing secret history books that some people think are complete drivel so I don’t see why Chris can’t make money selling books that are a bit silly in places. Marco tells me the book is selling very well.
