Reviews of Ether Frolics

Marlowe’s sense of place is dynamic and fresh, for all that his writing is set in the past… what Marlowe has written is a creation well worth the read, revealing a major Canadian talent.” – Chadwick Ginther, The Winnipeg Review

This collection of nine short stories is a true jaw-dropping jewel of a book…

Sporeville reviewed on Amy’s Marathon of Books

Paul Marlowesporeville‘s YA steampunk novel Sporeville was reviewed on Amy’s Marathon of Books:

“Jaunty, funny, exciting and disturbing are a few of the words I would use to describe Paul Marlowe’s Sporeville… I truly enjoyed this clever and engaging book.

Paisley, of course, was my favourite character, although even though I knew there was something supernatural about her, I didn’t realise she was a werewolf until Elliott figured it out himself. I loved her spirit, intelligence, and loyalty to Elliott, even though she’d only known him a few days before she needed to rescue him.

I also appreciated Marlowe’s well-developed sense of humour throughout the novel. At times I was sick to my stomach when I read about all of Professor Strange’s experiments, but Marlowe seemed to know just when to lighten the mood for his reader. I laughed out loud more than once…”
