John Barnes – “Mother of Storms”

Publ: 1994 ISBN: 0752808869
Rating: unrated
I managed the first three pages of this before I had to give up. Nothing to do John Barnes and the quality of his writing. It was the typeface used by Orion paperbacks, compared in the picture below left with the typeface of the Hazel Holt book, below right.

Admittedly when the book is 225,000 words long you need a fairly small typeface but this was just too extreme. A shame because this science fiction / disaster novel looked worth reading.
