    About "Philip Palmer"

    1. Philip Palmer

      I started writing when I was 14 and wrote a short story for the school magazine about a bank robber who is killed during a heist and goes to Heaven can t get through the Pearly Gates, and has to break in Nicely synthesising all the genres I still love to mash upWhen I came to London from University I started writing and combined that with working for theatres and TV and film companies as a script reader I worked at the Royal Court for a while, which taught me so much And then I became a telly writer and script editor.Now I am writing novels that are big and epic and draw on all the parts of my life, and of me HELL ON EARTH may be a surprise to readers who know my previous books it s not SF, for starters But there s still humour, I hope And mystery, and danger And a host of quirky and interesting characters, only some of them alive.

    1. Imagine Howard Stern and Quentin Tarantino donning star wars costumes and co-writing a science fiction novel. The reader (IMO the victimized reader) is subjected to a concurrent diatribe of profanity (Stern) while being doused with buckets of viscera (Tarantino). It's cool to shock, and people who are numb to this should consider reading 'The Breeds of Man', by F M Busby. This is another one-star SF novel because it contains scenes that portray pedophile behavior as acceptable. If that shocks yo [...]


    2. I read Hell Ship because I loved Artemis, and I also loved this book though Artemis was more emotional. However Hell Ship is more grand. It takes time to build up. I would not even try to review this book as there is so much going on, but it followers three (first person) points of view. Be warned there are no humans in this novel, only many different cultures and aliens and universes. And while this is a science-fiction novel, to me it read as fantasy. It had more of a fairy-tale feeling to it. [...]


    3. I'm not sure what to make of this. In many ways it's wonderfully creative -- its aliens are alien, it's a quick read, the whole idea feels fresh But it's also gory for seemingly the sake of being gory, there's very little of hope, and there's very little point to all the riches he creates except for destruction. It's definitely not compelling in the same way as Palmer's other books. It feels like it's just an excuse to fling together a bunch of ideas and disparate characters. Like the reality sh [...]


    4. Hell Ship was the 4th Palmer novel that I've read and I had fairly high expectations. Palmer's unique SF style, visceral, shocking and punchy writing style really 'caught' with me and I quickly became a fan.Hell Ship has a great premise (I give nothing away here the back of the book doesn't); an alien ship goes around eradicating entire species, planets, universes except for one chosen individual and they are doomed to live on the Hell Ship with other species.Sound great? And it is until it drag [...]


    5. Hell Ship is a hell of a book. It's chock full of graphic, over the top violence, wanton murder and destruction, certainly the most graphic swearing in one book ever and probably the highest body count in a book ever. And for all it's one of the most sophisticatedly philosphical books I've had the pleasure to read, too. I was truly amazed and deeply moved by this book, especially by the character Sai-ias who will forever remain one of my favourite heroines in fiction. Hell Ship was absolutely ne [...]


    6. Philip Palmer is new to me but he comes highly recommended so I had high expectations. Hell ship lived up to my expectations for the most part.A mysterious vessel travels the universes and destroys all life in them. One survivor from each race is taken to the observation deck to watch their world destroyed before being made a slave forever. The slaves live in an artificial world inside the ship. This is the story of Sharrock who just saw his home world explode. He swears vengeance like all the s [...]


    7. Interesting concept but I just did not enjoy this book whatsoever. The last 100 pages or so were the most interesting but still in no way was that able to save this book for me. There wasn't a single character I liked and more to the point I really did not care what happened to any of them. Especially when the whole book was more or less the same characters doing the same exact things over and over with pretty much the same ultimate result.In short an exercise in insanity that I was just not fee [...]


    8. Some time ago, I read Philip Palmer's debut novel ''Debatable Space''. Whilst there were aspects of that novel I didn't feel entirely worked, it was a well paced read for the most part and I marked Palmer as a writer to watch. His subsequent novels, ''Red Claw'' and ''Version 43'', have been well received and his fourth, ''Hell Ship'', isn't bad either.As is Palmer's style, the story is told from the differing points of view of various characters. There is the warrior Sharrock, who returns from [...]


    9. I feel like I should start by saying this is the first Philip Palmer book I’ve read. It makes me not really want to look into any others, but based on reviews this is apparently one of his worst books. That being said, my review:This book. I don't even know where to start. It's not that it was all bad. There was good here. Palmer has a gift for throwing you into a story with aliens and nothing remotely human without a whole lot of back story and expansive descriptions on what they're like. Tho [...]


    10. A planet-sized ship crosses galaxies and universes, subjugating planetary inhabitants into near extinction save for the one or two beings this Hell Ship brings aboard for undisclosed reasons. Life on the ship is harsh, almost post-apocalyptic in the barrenness of the landscape and harshness of the beings living on it. The story begins as the Hell Ship conquers its latest planet and brings aboard Sharrock, the sole survivor or a warrior people. During the attack, Sharrock seemingly died via lava- [...]


    11. After reading some negative reviews I thought I had made an error buying this book, it turns out that the negative reviews I read were from prude people.Contrary to what I read, the book doesn't have an excess of vulgar or bad language, there is bad language, there is graphical violence but it's there for a reason, its not gratuitous or offensive.But back to the book itself, the book pace is excellent the alien species are truly alien, not just in looks but in morals, life perspective and feelin [...]


    12. The Hell Ship is an enormous vessel, filled with the slaves of conquered worlds. Sharrock is one the slaves, but he refuses to give up and swears that he will break his chains and bring down his masters. Against him is the leader of the slaves who will do anything to preserve the status quo she has worked so hard for. Unknown to the slaves the Hell Ship is also being hunted by a powerful ship and is in the control of a man whose mind was merged with the ship’s AI.If like me you love to be amaz [...]


    13. This was, I think, one of the stranger books I've ever readThe author of the book has an inordinate amount of pleasure in using vulgarity. Nonetheless, the book presents some exceptionally interesting ideas. Also, the book doesn't excellent job of describing different alien species and mindsets which is rare, I find, in soft sci-fi. I almost downgraded the book by a rating do to the excessive use of coarse language, however, it almost fits. The thing, though, that made the book worth it for me, [...]


    14. This book was amongst the worst books I have ever read. While, I'm not opposed to gratuitous violence or swearing, there is a practical limit to what is acceptable, and this book exceeds it, by a lot. Much of the dialog between characters revolved around disgusting, vulgar insults that were so vile, I nearly stopped reading, but I kept hoping that once the characters became 'friends' it would stop. Well, it didn't stop, the vulgarity continues unabated throughout the entire novel. I also kept ho [...]


    15. This is an interesting novel with a compelling premise: a ship so powerful that it can travel through universes, destroying the civilizations it meets and capturing a representative from each race. The characters are reasonably well-developed, with a few characters given detailed attention. The author has given the details a good deal of thought. I found several instances in which I thought I had identified a hole in the plot, only to have it explained at a later point in the book. The storyline [...]


    16. He'll Ship is definitely interesting. Palmer again fully realizes so many alien races, accomplishing to make them truly alien, and not just biped with forehead accouchement ( sorry Star Trek I didn't mean it I luv you) overall it wasn't my favorite book but I enjoyed the world building. It was probably more graphic than needed but I didn't mind it, it showcased the raw brutality of the multi-verse which is rarely done on such a vast scale. I appreciated the lack of hope in the book where there s [...]


    17. Some diminishing returns. I don't mind a split narrative but when they have such a tenuous relationship, and one is less interesting than the other, it makes half the book a slog. I really liked Sharrock as a character, and Sai-as too, but the other half of the book just didn't have the same resonance, even when it was raising the stakes for how awful the villains are-and those stakes are raised extremely high. Fans of Palmer from Version 43 and Red Claw may be a little disappointed, but still d [...]


    18. When I read Version 43 from Philip Palmer, I was complaining that he'd killed so many people. A few dead people in a story don't bother me, but he killed whole cities and then went on to exterminate entire planets. And after a while it was too muchWell now. In Hell Ship he goes further. He destroys wait for it . whole universes. Yes, an entire reality. And not just 3 of them. Millions (!!!) of them.


    19. A grab-bag of aliens, all solitary survivors of their civilization's destruction, find ways to live together while slaved aboard the giant death ship that did the deed. Oh and one guy chases said ship across universes in a millennial quest for revenge. Lots of death rays. And humor. It's a good read esp for the summertime.


    20. This really is one of the most hyperbolic sf novels I've read in a long time. In its descriptions of aliens, its depicting of love, hate, peace, war, the futility of religion and philosophy, and most of all its humour. This: "Explorer 410 I don't have emotions, but I do have a sense of humour. It's one of my subroutines."


    21. This is lots of fun, as usual from Palmer. Greatly inventive, loads of action and colour. A bit of an unsatisfactory ending, but whether that's because I was unhappy the ride was over or because all his superb character work didn't quite end up going anywhere, I'm not sure. A gnat's whisker shy of brilliant.


    22. "I found it," said the reviewer, "very irritating how dialogue was often split arbitrarily, with no consideration of clause or phrasing."It reminded," he continued, "me of a Year 6 child trying to vary speech sentences unsuccessfully."When it happens on every," he sighed, "page, it gets extremely annoying."I did," he confessed, "not finish the book."


    23. My favourite Palmer book so far, full of incrediable aliens, senseless violance and a breakneck pace. Also the plot features the greatest crime probably ever committed to paper. My one quibble is that I felt the ending was a little rushed


    24. Another excellent bloody apocalypse by Philip Palmer. The scope of this guys destruction has no limits. Whole planets destroyed, Entire universes slaughtered. Exactly my kind of story. My favorite is still Red Claw, though.


    25. Cool book. Well written. The ending was a bit cliché, but I've always liked the world within a world idea, and Palmer did a nice job of building all the layers. Book would have been five star if the author had come up with a less predictable ending.


    26. I don't know what Philip Palmer was smoking when he wrote this book Skip this one, even fans of Philip Palmer.
