Commentary

FINDER is a densely imagined walk in the clouds, a piece where the destination isn't always as important as the journey. It's very, very easy to leave the track of the main plotline and get lost in the details and sights and sounds of a gently mental future culture.

A Finder is a member of a secret society of superbly skilled elite trackers and hunters. Jaeger is a Finder. He's also a Sin-Eater; a scapegoat who purifies the dying by taking on their sins and being punished for them. SIN-EATER, is a tangled story of family, madness, secrets and visions that can go within pages from the hallucinatory to the kitchen sink and remain utterly lucid. And completely fascinating. It does that trick that all good sf novels do - it draws you into its world deeply enough for you to live within it.
