General Music: Because of the divergent history of The Year of the Knife, music that we take for granted as old hat is only just coming to the fore. In the American colonies this means that country music and bluegrass are the next big thing. Of course, culture and music are deeply intertwined, and urbanisation has already happened, so these bluegrass bands can’t be singing purely about rural experiences.

  • Thunderstruck- Steve and the Seagulls
  • Rocketman- Iron Horse
  • In The Pines- Grateful Dead

Songs for Sully: If Sully knew that somebody was making a playlist for her, she would probably be furious. She has some problems with sentimentality.

  • If I Had A Heart- Fever Ray
  • Long Live The Chief- Jidenna
  • Paint it Black- Rolling Stones

Songs for Marie: The relationship between Sully and Marie might be the heart of the book, and indeed the whole series of stories surrounding it, but it isn’t all positive… or even mostly positive. Love is funny like that.

  • King Harvest- Dancing in the Moonlight
  • Chandelier- Sia
  • Closer- The Tiny

Songs for Eugene the Sailor Doll: This creepy little demon doll would probably love to have a playlist, if someone explained what a playlist was. He would probably listen to it on loop while staring at you.

  • Bring Your Whole Crew- DMX
  • Devil Went Down to Georgia- Primus
  • Down With The Sickness- Richard Cheese

The WOUNDED ONES Blog Tour

The Wounded Ones by G.D. Penman coming June 23, 2020

Demons and serial killers are Iona “Sully” Sullivan’s bread and butter, but nothing could have prepared her to face off against the full weight of the British Empire at the height of its power. With the War for American Independence in full swing, she finds even her prodigious talents pushed beyond their limits when citizens of the American Colonies begin vanishing amidst rumors of crop circles, hydra sightings and worse. Through a wild and lethal adventure that will see her clashing with the Empire around the world and beyond, the only constants in Sully’s life are an undead girlfriend, a giant demon crow that has taken a shine to her, regular assassination attempts by enemies on all sides, and the cold certainty that nothing and nobody is going to make it out of the war in one piece.

A very entertaining and atmospheric alternative history fantasy novel … I would highly recommend The Wounded Ones to fans of the first novel in the series, and I would certainly recommend the author as a superbly creative fantasy writer.
