Review: Reese by Lori Handeland

Reese by Lori Han­de­land My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars And now for some­thing COMPLETELY dif­fer­ent. Yes, this book is out of char­ac­ter for me, but I like Lori Han­de­land, and since I received a free copy I felt oblig­at­ed to read it and write a review. I’m keep­ing the fact that it is a western […]

Review: This Case Is Gonna Kill Me by Phillipa Bornikova

This Case Is Gonna Kill Me by Philli­pa Borniko­va My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars This book was an unex­pect­ed delight. Lawyers? Meh. Even lawyers with para­nor­mal spice.  But Lin­net Ellery is no ordi­nary lawyer, even for a young lawyer in a White Fang law firm. She has no end of back­bone and smarts, not to mention […]

Review: Face Off by Mark del Franco

Face Off by Mark Del Fran­co My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars I went back and forth on the rat­ing for this book but final­ly set­tled on a four. I hon­est­ly found all the con­flict to be exhaust­ing and unpleas­ant, but it was very real­is­ti­cal­ly writ­ten and I cer­tain­ly felt con­nect­ed to Black­stone. I decid­ed that […]

Review: Skin Deep by Mark del Franco

Skin Deep by Mark Del Fran­co My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars This is an intrigu­ing begin­ning to a series. I’ve played a char­ac­ter with sim­i­lar abil­i­ties in a long-run­n­ing role­play­ing game, so I was par­tic­u­lar­ly inter­est­ed in this book. I think the author did an excel­lent job of explor­ing just how much could be done […]

Review: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Ready Play­er One by Ernest Cline My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars Add this book to the short­list of must-reads for every True Geek, right along­side Snow Crash. It’s a glee­ful homage to geek­dom and pop cul­ture. Wade explains to the read­er that he was born after human­i­ty wore the world out and escaped to OASIS, […]

Family Announcement

I know, I know — I’ve been post­ing a lot of reviews late­ly. They seemed more inter­est­ing than actu­al updates. Most of my time has been spent doing vol­un­teer work for Grants to You, which is inter­est­ing to do but not to describe. How­ev­er, I have actu­al NEWS now! My baby girl and her beau […]

Book Review: More Holmes for the Holiday edited by Martin H. Greenberg & Jon L. Lellenberg

More Holmes for the Hol­i­days by Mar­tin H. Green­berg My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars Mar­tin H. Green­berg and com­pa­ny have pro­vid­ed a fine col­lec­tion of Sher­lock­ian hol­i­day sto­ries that fit in quite well with the tra­di­tion­al set. “The Christ­mas Gift” by Anne Per­ry is a nice lit­tle piece about a stolen Stradi­var­ius and a cou­ple who […]

Book Review: Dragon Ship by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

Drag­on Ship by Sharon Lee My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars Sharon Lee and Steve Miller con­tin­ue to please with this lat­est install­ment in the Liaden Uni­verse series. Theo Wait­ley, now First Pilot on the sen­tient ship Bechi­mo, is in the process of decid­ing whether she’s going to bond with the ship per­ma­nent­ly as its Captain. […]

Book Review: Ghost Ship by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

Ghost Ship by Sharon Lee My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars Theo Wait­ley has met her father’s Clan and been Seen by the Delm of Kor­val now, at the end of both I Dare and Salta­tion. She does not, how­ev­er, con­sid­er her­self of Kor­val — she is a Wait­ley, as is rea­son­able for a young woman […]

Book Review: Saltation by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

Salta­tion (Theo Wait­ley, #2) by Sharon Lee My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars Salta­tion (Theo Wait­ley, #2) is good enough that I fin­ished Fledg­ling (Theo Wait­ley, #1), then read it in one sit­ting. It sim­ply has the sort of momen­tum that does­n’t allow for good stop­ping points — some­thing that is true of many of the […]
