Sören Heim


Sören Heim is a German poet and journalist. He writes a serial column on literature for the debating portal Die Kolumnisten.

  • Funny, Complex, Imbalanced. Sören reads The Simoqin Prophecies by Samit Basu. He finds it a balancing act between (not quite) pratchettesque fun, deconstructionist fantasy and jabs at PCRPGs. Sometimes it feels like a crossover between The Elder Scrolls and Monkey Island, but it has its great moments, too.
