Turbulence in the USA: Part Two

For part one of this tale of intercontinental superheroics and shenanigans, go here.

Today’s update:

James Floyd Kelly, who wrote the amazing Wired review in the US when Turbulence was out in the UK, now has a new site and an incredibly generous US release update for Turbulence:

“If you like superhero stories and are looking for some truly unique powers AND a completely new locale, you MUST read Turbulence. It. Is. That. Good.” – Geek Dad

In other review news, Mind of the Geek has given us an A+!

“The challenges his characters face are not just world domination, warped nationalism, and megalomania, but also realistic concerns like their professional goals and self-doubts. Overall, Turbulence is a clever update to the superhero genre, bringing a realistic upgrade to the 21st century that involves more heart and substance than just adding new costumes and cell phones.” – Mind of the Geek

and more kindness from Retrenders:

“Writer Samit Basu has found a great balance of humor and seriousness in Turbulence, but most of all it’s just a fun superhero novel to read and questions to ponder yourself when done reading.” – Retrenders

Also, on the non-review front, a long rambling chat about Turbulence with the mighty Beth Loves Bollywood in The Cultural Gutter where we discuss, among other things, supervillain lairs and Not Explaining India.
