I’ve been trying to think of a witty way to start this review. Maybe I could start with a sailing joke? Instead, I’m going to begin with a statement; The Bone Ships, by Robert Holstock Award winner RJ Barker, is utterly phenomenal!
A little bit of a “in case you missed it” type post with full panel recordings. Check the promos above each video to see the topics and panelists. Hope you enjoy!
