Review: Blackout by Connie Willis

Black­out by Con­nie Willis My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars Oh, Ms. Willis! I can­not believe you did this to me! A cliffhang­er? After 512 many pages? And I hung in there SO long in the begin­ning when the book was so slow to get going!  Seriously–during all that nat­ter­ing about over changed sched­ules and find­ing drop […]

Book Reviews: A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Mar­tin My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars I final­ly got around to read­ing A Game of Thrones, despite the fact that the series still was­n’t fin­ished when I start­ed, because the tele­vi­sion series was start­ing. Sam real­ly want­ed to watch it, and I did­n’t want to see it without […]

Book Review: The Horns of Elfland edited by Ellen Kushner and Delia Sherman

The Horns of Elfland by Ellen Kush­n­er My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars It took a while to track down this vol­ume, as it has long been out of print. The inter­li­brary loan was, once again, my friend. But how odd to read an actu­al phys­i­cal book again, when I’ve been read­ing ebooks almost exclu­sive­ly lately!

Review: Blood Oath by Christopher Farnsworth

Blood Oath by Christo­pher Farnsworth My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars Blood Oath is an inter­est­ing and fair­ly refresh­ing vari­a­tion on the vam­pire riff. Most of the cur­rent tales give us a suave, sexy preda­tor who mes­mer­izes his or her prey, leav­ing humans pin­ing for their pres­ence. They might even fall in love with a human. […]

Book Review: Changes by Jim Butcher

Changes by Jim Butch­er My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars I do not give out many 5‑star rat­ings, but for this book I could­n’t do any­thing else. That is despite the fact that Jim Butch­er did some­thing I hon­est­ly did­n’t think he would do to his legions of loy­al read­ers, some­thing that I absolute­ly detest. Something […]

Review: American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Amer­i­can Gods by Neil Gaiman My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars I’m try­ing to remem­ber whether or not I’ve read any of Gaiman’s oth­er nov­els before, and I’m fair­ly cer­tain that I haven’t. I read Good Omens, but that was co-writ­ten with Ter­ry Pratch­ett, and the col­lab­o­ra­tion was genius. Of course, I know that the entire […]

Book Review: Shift by Rachel Vincent

Shift by Rachel Vin­cent My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars I’m left with lit­tle to say that won’t be a spoil­er oth­er than, “Dan­git, why can’t more authors work in some polyamory instead of using the same old jeal­ousy-based plots?” Because I do NOT find that enter­tain­ing or inter­est­ing at ALL! 

Review: Fantasy in Death by J.D. Robb

Fan­ta­sy in Death by J.D. Robb My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars Fan­ta­sy in Death is an inter­est­ing take on the death-by-gam­ing plot that has pre­vi­ous­ly been done by a cou­ple of fan­ta­sy and sci­ence fic­tion authors, most notably in Niv­en and Barnes’ Dream Park series. I doubt that most of Rob­b’s read­ers will be familiar […]
