REVIEW – The World House (2010) By Guy Adams

June 18, 2010

Strange Horizons have my review of Guy Adams’ fantasy thriller The World House.

The novel is an under-written and entirely insubstantial piece of fluff entirely undeserving of your time.  The review, on the other hand, contains a brief meditation on the relationship between the MacGuffin and the Big Dumb Object:  I maintain that the Big Dumb Object is effectively an inverted Macguffin as while the MacGuffin exists in order to drive the plot, the plot exists in order to permit the exploration of the Big Dumb Object.
