  • The Power of the Eight

    The Power of the Eight

    The Power of the Eight by Suzanne Rho is one of those books that improves after the fact. If that sounds like I am damning it with faint praise – hold on – I’m not. As I initially read the story I found it enjoyable. It’s the kind of read I like to take along […]

  • Ta Le – Book 1: Knowledge

    Ta Le – Book 1: Knowledge

    I picked up the novel of Yessoh G.D. entitled “Ta Le” because I wanted to experience a culture that was not my own. I find myself torn about leaving this review because my background is not African and I’m wondering if I am missing something, or if I’m taking something for granted that is not […]

  • Dark Apprentice

    Dark Apprentice

    Wow, I really dislike Nikolai Fedorov. I know this guy. He is the guy who smirks when they think you can’t see. He is the guy convinced of their own superiority.

    Oathbreaker

  • Ground Control

    Ground Control

    I could not have been more wrong. While the plot does follow the basic tenets of Sci-fi and space colonization it is far more a story about inner space than outer space. 

  • Wild Things Will Roam

    Wild Things Will Roam

    Wild Things Will Roam, the debut novel by K.M. West, is a post-apocalyptic gore fest with a soul. The surprises don’t stop there.

  • The Accounting: A Trump Presidency

    The Accounting: A Trump Presidency

    A couple of weeks ago (maybe more) I promised to do a follow-up to my series of articles that I wrote in early November of 2016. And then life happened. But, I am getting to it, right now in fact. Here is a list of the original articles if you want to refresh your memory. […]
