Readers love
the Rucksack Universe’s
“quirk, wit, travel, and magic”

★★★★★ “A delightful read, especially for those who love to travel—even if only in their armchairs.”

★★★★★ “Anthony’s got an amazing sense of the epic, and each of the stories in the Rucksack Universe keeps building on the groundwork that came before. There’s a lot of long play being worked out through the stories and I just can’t wait to see how it all weaves together and falls into place.”

★★★★★ “A stand-out writer and author to watch (and read) for the future! This is not Douglas or Pratchett, this is St. Clair!

★★★★★ “Suspense, intrigue, adventure, questionable love, magic and a twist. Anticipation of what’s to happen next kept me turning the pages of this delightful read.”
