Book Review: Storm Front by Jim Butcher

Storm Front by Jim Butch­er My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars I just re-read Storm Front, after first read­ing it — well, I don’t even know how many years ago! Short­ly after it was first released, I think.  Now, it’s impor­tant to know that I sim­ply don’t re-read books. I find that too bor­ing, most of the […]

Book Review: Blood Lite III: Aftertaste edited by Kevin J. Anderson

Blood Lite III: After­taste by Kevin J. Ander­son My rat­ing: 2 of 5 stars This anthol­o­gy is sup­posed to be humor­ous hor­ror. I have a mes­sage for Kevin J. Ander­son: gross­ness is not near­ly enough for humor. I hope vol­ume two was fun­nier (I haven’t read it yet), but if it was as bad as this […]

Review: Ghost Story by Jim Butcher

Ghost Sto­ry: A Nov­el of the Dres­den Files by Jim Butch­er My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars Of course I (along with all Jim Butch­er’s oth­er fans) have been absolute­ly dying to read this book ever since fin­ish­ing Changes. Sam and I have been talk­ing about how there could pos­si­bly be anoth­er book that occurs after […]

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: Mean Streets by Jim Butcher

Mean Streets by Jim Butch­er My review rat­ing: 4 of 5 starsMean Streets is one of the best antholo­gies I’ve read in a while. It only has four dif­fer­ent pieces in it, but they’re all novel­las, and all by strong, expe­ri­enced writ­ers. I don’t think any of them are here rid­ing on some­one else’s name […]

Books Books Books!

Yes, the girl and I man­aged a library run (to the GOOD library) on Fri­day. It took more time and ener­gy than expect­ed, of course, but we got a bunch of very good books.  I read My Big Fat Super­nat­ur­al Hon­ey­moon last night, with much gig­gling. The sto­ries were a bit uneven (nor­mal for an anthology), […]

Disappointed!

(I’m hear­ing Gary Old­man in The Fifth Ele­ment when I read the sub­ject there. Yes, I prob­a­bly could have found a sound clip and includ­ed it, but I’m count­ing on your imag­i­na­tions and mem­o­ries here.) Well, I final­ly got around to read­ing the rest of Fledg­ling, the Liaden Uni­verse nov­el pub­lished by seri­al­ly by Sharon Lee […]
